Chromatic theology...

I have been knee-deep and swimming in color lately {the recent sprinkle of posts provides clear and undeniable evidence}. Float through this post as the chromatic theology series continues.
Each post in this series will explore an individual hue, but the characteristics of the topic color can be translated into tints and shades. Keep in mind that the effects and emotions we discuss are most prominent and intense in pure, saturated color. {In case you need to catch up on color - gather basic knowledge and catch a glimpse of red with the inaugural post.}
Basking in the warm glow of gentle yellow is a perfect way to continue frolicking through chromatic theology. To some extent, the distinctive attributes of yellow will be present in color variations - mustard, butter cream, saffron, sunflower, etc.
YELLOW is a strong warm color, with pleasant and optimistic emotional content. Yellow is the least problematic color, a cheerful and non-aggressive hue. This jovial hue is highly-reflective, producing expansive characteristics reminiscent of sunlight. Soft tints of yellow {butter cream and pastel pineapple} serve as great background colors - active with mild stimulation. Inviting yellow into your home is like ordering a glass of house wine, safe; you may not swoon for the taste it leaves in your mouth, but at least you won’t hate it either. Yellow is simple and amiable, and every now and then - unexpectedly brilliant.
Come back next week for a drop of refreshing citrus - orange.
