Scope of Colour!

David Batchelor, Scottish artist and writer once wrote:

“Colour is uncontainable. It effortlessly reveals the limits of language and evades our best attempts to impose a rational order of it….To work with colour is to become acutely aware of the insufficiency of language and theory – which is both disturbing and pleasurable”.

All colors initiate a response which may be positive or negative depending on the circumstances. Colour is extensive and can be classified as being primary, secondary and tertiary or warm and cool colors. The theory of colour usage can be applied to dress style, interior design, music videos, journalism and much more.

The scope of colour psychology, its uses and application in everyday life, describes the colour phenomenon.
