Colour Facts For February 2015

Colour Facts
  1. One of the most popular colours amongst all other colours for raincoats is the yellow coloured raincoat. This is especially more prevalent in areas which experience heavy rainfall and no, the reason behind this is not always the love of the colour yellow! It is a well-known fact that of all the colours, yellow, being a bright colour, attracts the maximum attention and is visible from afar. It is because of this that people prefer yellow raincoats, so that they are clearly visible to drivers and motorists from a safe distance.

  2. Red is the fieriest colour of all and so are the people who love this colour! The popular perception is that people who claim red is their favourite colour are energetic, exciting and extroverted. They are also said to be born leaders with exceptional leadership qualities. However, it's not all rosy even for the red lovers! It's believed that lovers of red are generally bossy by nature and have a tendency to be moody and restless. They are also a little too opinionated and can get aggressive at times!

  3. Blue may be the universal choice for a favourite colour but there was a time when even blue lovers were not allowed to use this colour freely. The reason was that the colour blue was very difficult and expensive to obtain, as it was produced by crushing the precious Lapis Lazuli jewel stone. Thus, the use of this colour was highly limited and regularized, and there were also laws in place to decide which artists were allowed to use this colour for painting!

  • "Colour is a means of exerting a direct influence on the soul. Colour is a keyboard, the eyes, the hammers and the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand which plays, touching one key or another purposively to cause vibrations in the soul."

    - Wassily Kandinsky

  • "Above all keep your colours fresh!"

    - Edouard Manet

  • "Instead of trying to reproduce exactly what I see before me, I make more arbitrary use of colour to express myself more forcefully‚Ķ To express the love of two lovers by the marriage of two complementary colours‚Ķ To express the thought of a brow by the radiance of a light tone against a dark background. To express hope by some star. Someone's passion by the radiance of the setting sun."

    - Vincent van Gogh
