Orange is red brought nearer to humanity by yellow.
The fourth spread in my Monochromatic Series, and the colour is happy orange.
I’m not sure if it is true but I heard that orange is the colour of creativity. When we see this colour it would makes us more creative… it might be true. At least I know for sure that it is a juicy happy colour. I’ve also read that it stimulates activity and appetite, and encourages socialization! Isn’t it cool what colours can do, hehe.
Orange makes me thirsty for orange juice. I can even smell oranges when I see the colour. Another strong image that comes up when I think about this colour are the smiling Buddhist monks I’ve met, all wrapped in orange cloth. I also think of henna, curry, saffron and other spices…
If you mix red and yellow you’ve got yourself a pretty orange. Try it out and let me know how it goes.
