The meaning of colours~3 Orange

Orange is the only color of the spectrum whose name was taken from an object, the popular fruit – the orange. In nature it’s the color of vivid sunsets, fire, vegetables, flowers, fish, and many citrus fruits.

Orange symbolizes energy, vitality, cheer, excitement, adventure, warmth, and good health. However, pure orange can be brass, it may suggest a lack of serious intellectual values and bad taste.

It’s worth noting that there are many shades of orange – and different meanings. Some may be more appealing to those who find orange difficult: terracotta or cayenne – a dark orange, persimmon – a red-orange, pumpkin – a pure orange, mango – a yellow orange, salmon – a pink orange, melon – a light orange.

Darker oranges offer a sense of comfort; some are spicy, some are earthy. Lighter oranges are soothing and healthy.

  6. Hmm this escaped me.. Another great one Fraggs, know any diners opening up, they could buy these for their walls!!!


  7. Great still life image, I can imagine you having fun finding all of this and arranging it. It really does make me hungry – I think the idea of printing this on a large block canvas and taking it to restaurants to see if they are interested may be a great one?
