Oh, Something About Red – Original SOLD – Prints Available
Red is one of the colors that is difficult to ignore. What is that something about Red that grabs our attention?
Red attracts attention more than any other color.
Red is a very emotionally intense color. It is engaging, flirtatious, memorable, and the color of passion.
Red is the color of extremes. It is a warm and positive color associated with our most physical needs and our will to survive. It exudes a strong and powerful masculine energy.
Red is energizing. It excites the emotions and motivates us to take action. It signifies a pioneering spirit and leadership qualities, promoting ambition and determination.
Red is also strong-willed and can give confidence to those who are shy or lacking in will power. Being the color of physical movement, the color red awakens our physical life force.
The Wonders of the Color of Red
Red is the color of sexuality and can stimulate deeper and more intimate passions in us, such as love and sex on the positive side or revenge and anger on the negative.
Red at its most positive can create life with its sexual energy, or use its negative expression of anger and aggression to fuel war and destruction.
Red can stimulate the appetite, often being used in restaurants for this purpose. It also increases craving for food and other stimuli.
Being surrounded by too much of the color red can cause us to become irritated, agitated and ultimately angry. Too little and we become cautious, manipulative and fearful.
Red plays well with others as you can see in these two paintings. Notice how the blues, greens, oranges and yellows come to life on the background of the intense red. For all Red’s characteristics, a painter and perhaps the painter’s audience just can’t ignore Red.
