Selecting colours in Art for their meaning

All artworks require a good choice of colours. However, artworks like designs, patterns, abstract art and modern art tend to have a higher dependence on the colours used. Hence before choosing colours for the artwork it is always better to know about colours and their meanings. If you want to appeal to a certain audience, it is always a good idea to know their interpretation of colours. I am going to discuss the broader interpretation and general meanings in this post.

Art is about the freedom to express. We all draw and paint to express our thoughts. A good piece of art is one that conveys the artists message clearly. Worldwide, we associate colours with certain emotions. That is why when an artist paints a red rose it invokes a different reaction and when he paints a black rose it invokes a different one. Why? Because every colour has a meaning. Some meanings are accepted in general by most people while some have deeper or additional meanings.
