Colour Concepts

Once you have introduced colour into your surroundings you will never be able to live without it.

A SENSE OF COLOUR

‘SPRING IS TENDER, GREEN YOUNG

CORN AND PINK APPLE BLOSSOMS.

AUTUMN IS THE CONTRAST OF THE YELLOW

LEAVES AGAINST VIOLET TONES. WINTER IS

THE SNOW WITH BLACK SILHOUETTES BUT

NOW, IF SUMMER IS THE OPPOSITION OF

BLUES AGAINST AN ELEMENT OF ORANGE,

IN THE GOLD BRONZE OF THE CORN, ONE

COULD PAINT A PICTURE WHICH EXPRESSED

THE MOOD OF THE SEASONS IN EACH OF THE

CONTRASTS OF THE COMPLEMENTARY

COLOURS…’
