Color theory and color wheels
Colored pencils Color or colour (see spelling differences ) is the visual perceptual property corresponding in humans to the categories called red , blue , yellow , green and others. Color derives from the spectrum of light (distribution of light power versus wavelength ) interacting in the eye with the spectral sensitivities of the light receptors . Color categories and physical specifications of color are also associated with objects, materials, light sources, etc., based on their physical properties such as light absorption, reflection, or emission spectra. By defining a color space , colors can be identified numerically by their coordinates. Because perception of color stems from the varying spectral sensitivity of different types of cone cells in the retina to different parts of the spectrum, colors may be defined and quantified by the degree to which they stimulate these cells.
I'm always incorporating color meaning into symbolic interpretations. As with anything, color adds an extra layer of depth , quality and meaning to the overall view. When colors are shown to me, I typically revert to the chakras for intuitive cues. The chakras can serve as effective blueprint for color meaning. For example, the root ( Muladhara) chakra is the pilot light of the energetic chakra spine.

Color symbolism is the use of color to represent traditional, cultural, or religious ideas, concepts, or feelings or to evoke physical reactions.

Choosing colors based on symbolism can apply to everything from clothing to wall paint to home furnishings .
Red Red is the color of fire and blood, so it is associated with energy, war, danger, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love. Red is a very emotionally intense color.
