HOW THE PLAY OF COLOR IN PAINTING SETS THE MOOD

HOW TO BUY A PAINTING TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE INFLUENCE OF COLOR ON A PERSON.

Color has great energy and certainly has a strong impact on humans. As well as the person, in turn, gives colors different meanings.
Turning to the origins of painting, namely, to iconography, we will see that the images were created according to certain canons, using color as a symbol.
Indeed, iconographers equate the power of color with the power of words in its expressiveness.

Red-color denotes life, love, life-giving energy and is a symbol of the victory of life over death (Resurrection)
Gold-conveys the radiance of God, the splendor of the Kingdom of Heaven, the color of God
White is the color of purity, simplicity, righteousness and Holiness
Crimson (purple) – the color of the king, Lord, Emperor
Black is the color of darkness, evil, the color of death
Brown-the color of the earth, a symbol of the mortal world, all transient, temporary.
Green-the color of wildlife, a symbol of the beginning of life.
Blue and cyan-the colors of the mother of God, a symbol of earthly and heavenly connection
Gray color has never been used on icons, because it was the result of mixing white and black and was a symbol of uncertainty, non-existence.

In the works of painting, colors were also given a certain meaning in different periods of history, but these values changed quite often, moreover, they were always under the influence of ethnic traditions.

However, research psychologists have identified General principles of the influence of colors in picturesque paintings in person:
Red-the color of energy and passion, activates all body systems, improves tone
Yellow-the color of optimism and joy, gives confidence, uplifting
Green-the color of harmony and nature, relieves stress, heals.
Orange-combines the properties of red and yellow colors, promotes creative thinking, generating ideas
Turquoise-the color of individualists, has the ability to protect, stimulate the immune system, and at the same time calms
Purple-enhances intuition, the color of meditation
Blue-the color of knowledge and harmony, calms, helps to focus
Pink-the color of love and care, helps to find peace of mind, increases confidence
Black and white are neutral colors.
It is proved that the same color affects people of different temperaments in different ways. For example, yellow will lift the mood of melancholic, but will irritate choleric.
Therefore, choosing a picture for the interior, take into account the temperament of the people who will live with this picture.
Also pay attention to the illumination of the room in which the picture will be placed, natural light. So, if the Windows face the North or West side, it is better to prefer a picture of a lighter color scheme.
Or before you buy a painting will need to plan additional lighting for the picture.
