What is a color?

The word "color" looks and sounds simple but itself it's having really very powerful meaning.

Human eye reacts to everything and color is having ability to change our mood and at the same time our behavior.

Although there are billions of people in the world and everyone will react to colour in very different way. The reason of it can lie deeply in upbringing, believing and life experience, the part of the world you live. Color association is generally based on person's individual personality or cultural background. In Western cultures black symbolizes death, but in other countries the color of death is white.

However, there is a "norm" for every color. Psychologists found the standard psychological effect for every colur which is likely to provoke either positive or negative effect but color should be chosen for every specific place individually.

      I have been using the one you have in #5, but now I use http://wwwkuler.com thru adobe. It's unbelievably clever. You just upload a photo and it gives you every combo of complementary, triad etc. and THEN it giev you the colors in HEX or RGB or any one of 3 other combos. Sooo cool.kuhl!!

      Just to let you know, I have contacted Amazon .com (the USA site) and it is not possible for me to use my Amazon.co.uk membership to order things from USA - what a shame! Still, I did try.

      I have just started art classes and our teacher was extolling and demonstrating the virtue of colour wheels. Being in England, it's not practical to buy from American Amazon instead of English Amazon because of postage cost, but I will click out from your website, and see if I can still get one cheaply. I haven't tried buying thro' Squidoo before.

      In a past life I was an interior decorator for a wallpaper specialist. Now I use my colour skills to teach quilters about colour. Thanks for the great info. I 'liked' it.
