Color: Yellow



“Everyone knows that yellow, orange, and red suggest ideas of joy and plenty. I can paint you the skin of Venus with mud, provided you let me surround it as I will.”  – Eugene Delacroix

I haven’t talked about color and its meaning in a while and decided today is the day because it’s a beautiful day and I feel like it!

Yellow, a color that most people either love or hate. Most people describe it as a cheerful color, a color that brightens a room, but it also strains the eye due to the high amount of light that is reflected. Because of how vibrant it is, yellow is used to grab peoples attention, thus using it as a warning sign for traffic lights, and traffic signs.

People have different feelings towards the color of yellow. Most find it a happy color, an optimistic one. People think of it as a color that shows confidence, originality, and creativity. It is known as challenging and fun. It also makes people feel as though it is a critical and judgmental color. A color that is impatient spiteful and cowardly. It reminds people of sickness, like the yellow fever, and when there is too much yellow in a room it causes agitation and anger.

What do you think of the color yellow? How does it make you feel?
