So let's see what I discovered in my research. Yellow is an intellectual colour full of creative energy, a symbol of happiness, joy, as well as wisdom.
Yellow is the third chakra at the solar plexus and governs areas like the large intestine, liver and stomach as well as other organs in that vicinity. It helps with movement and aids in energising and lifting the mood.
This colour stimulates mental activity and offers illumination and clarity. Yellow, however, is also linked to self-worth and ego. It is using the head rather than the heart. It has a very fast vibration so it is not good if you want to promote calm and peace.
I must mention here that the shade of yellow can indicate various moods, for instance light yellow is alertness and opens the mind. The darker yellows can point to lack of self worth, depression... I think you get the message.
So if you wish to get things going in your life in terms of changes, promote feelings of happiness and joy, get some help with making decisions, then yellow is the colour to use. It is a great way to stimulate the body and the brain, but remember doesn’t overdo it.
Now of course as part of my colour series I painted a yellow painting. It was great fun as I ended up doing an abstract piece. I just wanted to paint a version of sunshine, but with texture. Lovely shades of yellow were used, that reminded me of my childhood days spent playing amongst the buttercups, with the warm sunshine lighting up the fields all around. Colourful butterflies frolicking amongst the flowers feeding on nectar and the busy bees buzzing (that's a mouth full) around frantically collecting pollen for the honey. I just realised something all the things I have just mentioned like the sun, buttercups, bees,
pollen and honey all have a form of yellow in them... lol...
The first stage involved painting the background with light yellow in the middle gradually getting darker as it moved outwards, representing the radiance of the sun.
At the second stage I used petal shapes to form a spiral going clockwise, meaning growth, energising and creativity. I added different shades of yellow to each petal for depth and made the paint thick to add texture.
Finally I added gold embellishments in the centre to inject a third dimensional feel to it. I have named this painting ' Enlightenment' as yellow clears your mind and helps you reach your goals.
Love and Peace
