Color Coded: Electric Blue

March 19, 2012

Blue usually has a calming effect, but electric blue is dynamic, mysterious and unexpected like a “blue moon.” As we move into warmer weather, we can also note that Chinese culture associates blue with spring! Raoul Dufy, a French Fauvist Painter in the early 1900’s, proved the statement “true blue” when he stated that, “Blue is the only color which maintains its own character in all its tones…it will always stay blue; whereas yellow is blackened in its shades, and fades away when lightened; red when darkened becomes brown, and diluted with white is no longer red, but another color – pink.”
