If you went to the link I attached near the top of this post, you will have read about the brain activity in response to seeing color. It just so happens to be the same part of the brain that PTSD expresses itself, which is why many counselors utilize color therapy with clients and also maybe why we tend to choose blues, grays, and greens for the quieter rooms of our homes and bolder, stronger hues for where the action is.
In an upcoming post I will go into more detail about the way a hue's value, chroma, and temperature can be adjusted by the artist to conform to the story and mood she hopes to tell through the painting.
Hey! Thanks for reading!!!
