Orange is great when you are depressed or are having a low mood. It can help lift your mood and encourage optimism. Orange helps you look on the brighter side of life and stimulates mental activity.
Orange relates to enthusiasm and adventure, it is great for spicing up your life. This colour oozes confidence and is a bit extrovert. If you want to promote fascination, independence and social communication then use this colour more in your life. you can wear it, eat it and even surround yourself in it. Just do not overload, remember balance is the key. By the way orange is associated with strength and endurance too, that's always good to have.
So when you are feeling low and need a pick me up or you want courage in a social situation, then orange is your colour. Oh a quick disclaimer this is just to experiment and not a cure for anything. Just saying. :)
On that note here is my latest endeavor. My painting made with different shades of orange. I call it 'Free Your Mind', appropriate to the colour I thought as orange helps the creative juices flow and loves adventure.
Here are the different stages of the painting...
The mountain with the stairs, signifies the difficult path in life as it is a struggle to get to where you want to be. Hence the stairs going up, a long hard climb, rocky, tiring, difficult hurdles to overcome along the way.
Without further ado I give you the completed painting, 'Free Your Mind'.
