The Color Yellow


The theme for this month over at the Sketchbook Challenge is "YELLOW".  Yellow just happens to be my 8yo daughter's favorite color, so I was thrilled and inspired. 
 

YELLOW is such a joyful, happy, warm color.  I LOVE using yellow in my art, and if we look at the meaning of yellow we soon discover that is is a very powerful color, and wisdom favors those who favor it!



According to color meaning experts, YELLOW represent manifestations, prosperity, wisdom, play, joy, happiness, intellectual energy, sense of self, willfulness, and fortitude.


If you are drawn to YELLOW then your orientation is for Self-Definition.


 The element of YELLOW is FIRE, its purpose is TRANSFORMATION


The identities of YELLOW are energy, activity, autonomy, individuation, will, self-esteem, pro-activity, and power.


The fundamental characteristic of YELLOW is wisdom.  


These are a selection of my sketchbook pages from past years that favor the color YELLOW. 


Be sure to check out The Sketchbook Challenge and feel free to share your own sketches using the color YELLOW in their Flickr Group, and if you tag your image with may482, it will be included in their end of month slide show.

Thanks for checking in. xx
