Throughout the day- we are inundated and influenced by the colors around us. The red stop sign “says” we better pay attention or there will be danger. The green grass on a cool summer night “tells” us to relax. An illustrator for a children’s book will make choices that will influence whether or not a child enjoys a book.
There is a specific science behind color theory; how the light hits the retina in our eyes is part of the physiology behind our perception of light.
In my mind, there is no specific science that colors influence how we feel.
My assumptions about color:
- Purple is regal
- Red is angry
- Blue is melancholy
- Green is calming
- Pink is soothing
I have always been intrigued by color whether at work or at home. There are numerous books to borrow from the Library regarding color choices.
