Do colors express an idea or feeling?
We must step up the Stairs

Color influences the Soul


The Bluest Blue Sky / Saturday Afternoon on the Adriatic, Croatia / May 2005

More from Alan Fletcher's The Art of Looking Sideways:

Colour is a power which directly influences the soul. Colour is the keyboard, the eyes the hammer, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand which places, touching one key or another to cause vibration in the soul. It is therefore evident that colour harmony must rest only on a corresponding vibration in the human soul.
    -- W. Kandinsky. Concerning the Spiritual in Art (1947)
