Color Moods

Sponsored Links

Hello my dear viewers,

Here is another Blogging bee back in form with an interesting colorful blog- 'Color Moods':) So, what's late.. Let me start with it..;)

As my Co-Blogging bee already told you about the significance of Rainbow colors now, I'm going to discuss about which mood of you is reflected by which color and which color sooth's it.

Generally, a dull day with less sunlight makes one feel depresses and deprived of energy. Dull in the sense, you don't feel like doing any work..;)

This is because the color vibrations are a source of power & energy, each having a specific function.

Introduction:-

Before going into detail, it is my duty to mention about the great scientist, Sir Isaac Newton who was the one who discovered that white light is an amalgam of 7 colors (VIBGYOR) when passed through a prism. Each color has a specific wavelength and cannot further be split.

This is not a new thing as we know; it is an age old art because the great painters such as Picasso and Da Vinci have expressed their feelings and emotions through paintings and their colors. It was used as a means of communication. In this context, I would like to quote Picasso, "There are painters who transform the sun into a Yellow spot, but there are others who thanks to their art and & intelligence, transform a Yellow spot into the sun."
