The Psychology of Color

In my previous post regarding my latest impressionist landscape paintings for eBay auction I mentioned the psychology of color. I thought it would be fun to list some of the positive traits associated with certain colors. So what color are you?

If your favorite color is RED you may have these positive traits:
You likely possess an optimistic outlook, as well as being confident and action oriented. The vitality and energy you emit can draw others to you. You also show an enthusiasm for life and you don’t fear pursuing your dreams.
If your favorite color is ORANGE you may have these positive traits:

Being a combination of red with its energy and yellow with its cheerfulness the color orange gives a measure of warmth and happiness. It also is an optimistic color which can uplift and rejuvenate a sagging spirit.
If your favorite color is YELLOW you likely have a happy disposition and people like to be with you because you’re fun to be with. It also resonates with cheerfulness and creativity. You are often the one to come up with new ideas as yellow also relates to the mind and you tend to be analytical.

If BLUE is your favorite color you likely possess the characteristics of reliability, trustworthiness, being genuine and sincere. You’re also friendly and approachable being sensitive to the needs of others making them feel welcome when with you. Another trait is being sentimental and a somewhat nostalgic loving things of the past.
If PURPLE or VIOLET is your favorite color it shows you are are sensitive and compassionate, and supporting of others and often putting the needs of others before your own. You have a peaceful and tranquil quality about you. You can also inspire others with your creative thinking and how you deal with adversity with a positive outlook. The color purple is also associated with royalty therefore it creates an impression of luxury and opulence.

And as an artist this is one of my favorite colors:
GREEN
This color is associated with growth and is the color of spring. It has a rejuvenating quality renewing and replenishing energy by being a haven from the stresses of our hectic lives restoring our sense of well being. Green is a relaxing color and is associated with nature where it’s found in abundance.
I love painting the landscape with all its varieties of green and employing other positive colors in my paintings which brings enrichment to one’s life through art. I hope you will be one of them!  My eBay auctions and commissions are a great way to acquire one of my paintings. Contact me today and I’d be happy to discuss it with you.

So what is you’re favorite color?
