Colouring with Yellow

via Daily Prompt: Yellow

Ok, so I’m going to participate the Daily Prompt for the first time. Today is the word ‘Yellow‘ and since that is one of the two favorite colours of mine, I had to participate.

It has given me an idea: colouring in with one colour… and yellow is a challenge for me. Colouring with only blue is not that hard, green also… but yellow???? Not sure if that will give a great result.
But: I’m going to give it a try!!

Yellow’s global similarities are significant:

In almost every culture yellow represents sunshine, happiness, and warmth.

Yellow is the color most often associated with the deity in many religions (Hinduism and Ancient Egypt)

Yellow is the color of traffic lights and signs indicating caution all over the world.

What do you think of the result? It’s not the most spectacular one, but It does make me feel happy 🙂

Also nice to know:

Designing with Yellow

3 Yellows

Although there are strong mustard yellows and deep yellow ochres, there are no dark yellows.

When you add black to yellow you get gunky dirty green

Yellow is the only color that reacts badly to black: Add a little black and it becomes a sickly yellow-green.
