The colours - Orange

As a mixture of red and yellow, orange absorbs some of the qualities of both colours. It is brilliant and powerful when pure and since yellow radiates light and red energy, it is very much by association a colour of radiation.






When lighter as in pale beige and darker as brown it has neutral warmth. Orange is the colour of fire and of late afternoon sunlight. It has association with festivity and celebration - but also of heat and dryness.

Symbolically it can be changed with yellow for the sun and red for heat.
