Favorite Color

Posted by: Ronald Walker on 09/14/2013 - 6:22 PM

Manet said that it took him a lifetime to realize that the king of all colors was black. Personally I like Red but I have no real reason for that. How about you?

I tend to be drawn to anything vibrant. It's difficult to pick just one so I'm going with the reds, blues and greens.

Yes, Black is KING/dominant, isn't it......! But, it doesn't arouse emotion for me, except when juxtaposed with another (any) colour............then they're both exciting !!!

Blue

People often comment that I use a LOT of green.

I am partial to blue though my colorblindness may contribute to that as I can see that color much better than reds and greens.

Greens, sienna and black.

violet purple siding on red not blue. UV and any color that shifts like iridescent and dichroic.

Red is my favorite. I really enjoying colors that change from perspective, like my moonstone ring, and opals.

Moonstone ring... they still make those? or are you dating yourself ;O) I haven't seen one of those in a very long time....

@Bob - Moonstone is still a very popular gem, Wilkie Collins notwithstanding. ;-)

@Angelina... so sorry.. somehow I got Mood ring confused with moonstone... Guess I'm dating myself ;O)

Thank you Wendy for pointing that out. And here I go dating myself again.... Who is Wilkie Collins?

Women like more warm colors. I have found in many of my exhibitions. About these colors;

@Bob (totally off-topic for anyone not interested)

Wilkie Collins (1824 - 1889) was an English novelist, most famous for his works 'The Woman in White' and the history-making 'The Moonstone' -- which is, arguably, considered the first detective novel to be written in English.

Though the gem in the story was actually a diamond, true moonstones experienced a huge surge in popularity, based on the title of Wilkie's serial, and are still popular today.

Moonstones are lovely, and similar to opals. A quick search of 'moonstone jewelry' via Google images, might just make you fall in love . . . with the gleaming, mysterious, moonstone! :-)
