Colour has the ability to affect our mood.  Keeping this in mind, when painting choosing the right shade can be very important, especially if they are strong and vibrant.  Bold colours can have a surprising effect and can bring real energy to a painting and therefore a room.  Pretty pastel shades that have ice-cream tones can be very calming, whilst zesty colours such a lemon yellow with other fruity shades such as berry and pinks are synonymous with summer and can have an uplifting effect.  Paintings as with the interior design of our homes can have an accent colour to provide a contrast splash of solid colour against fresh white walls perhaps.  Enjoy bringing your home alive through the art of painting.
