In many ways...to me, color is a MYSTERY.
Why do we tend to favor certain colors? Why do certain colors
affect or thinking, our moods...even our level of creativity?
Why are some colors more pleasing to look at together than
other colors are when put together?
"The first color wheel has been attributed to Sir Isaac Newton, who in 1706 arranged red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet into a natural progression on a rotating disk. As the disk spins, the colors blur together so rapidly that the human eye sees white"
You can find a lot more about the history of the color wheel click HERE
This is an early 18th century depiction of the color wheel
"Two color circles are included as illustrations in the 1708 edition of Traité de la peinture en mignature, an artist's manual attributed to "C.B." (often assumed to be Claude Boutet, or the publisher, Christophe Ballard). "
There is a WHOLE world of Psychology...just in the realm of
