Colors Are Your Friends or let’s talk a bit of “my” Color Theory II

If you missed the first part of this series – you might want to check out this post first, so you know what me crazy girl is talking about 😉

So I introduced you to my friends Yellow, Blue and Red…let’s see who else is there.

My buddy Orange  is pretty social and communicative. Most of my friends like Orange. Orange also makes other friends stand out, Orange pushes them, but in a good way. Orange is warm and fun.

Next up is

Green is actually one of my very best and oldest friends. It is variable and contradictory at times. Green likes to blend in with my other friends, which makes it very easy to get along with green. Green doesn’t like conflicts and it is a good mentor to ease things. Green stabilizes. It is my most constant partner 🙂

Now next

I know, I know…some evil tongues say Black is not a friend aka color. Pah…that is bullying! Black is an awesome friend. It is all friends! Black is serious, and sometimes a bit humorless, but Black can be such a great supporter if you do not take Black to serious. Black also has this amazing ability to make other friends shine. Black in doses is awesome….but if you are around Black too much it might make you depressive so you have to pick your time with Black wisely 😉

Well…now that I introduced you to my friends- I will be talking about mixing and matching in the next “Colors are Your Friends” Post. Hope you enjoyed the first two parts 🙂

Now…is there a color I didn’t introduce that you think has a certain personality?




  1. What a fantastic post! I have been ‘saving as new’ about 14 of your posts as life got in the way and I didn’t want to miss one, hoping I could catch up. I was tempted over the last month to just clean out my inbox and chalk it up but I am SO glad I didn’t. Have totally enjoyed the last hour and change browsing, ogling, smiling, inhaling your art.

    This one is stunning with the way you’ve colored in the letters on STREET as one of about a dozen details that just pulls me in. Thanks for sharing, Nat – you are such an inspiration and you know if one person says it, there’s a ton more out there feeling it. Have a great weekend!

    • ahhhh Marjie!!! Thank you for your sweet words- you comment just made my sunday morning. Thank you so much! Huge hugs to you and have a wonderful relaxed sunday!

  2. This is a great series! Your descriptions are perfectly metaphorical! I feel like I KNOW these friends! P.S. I am very drawn to that green elk with the orange framing him. Love it!

  3. you know me – where´s turqouise?? But i know it´s not really a color, it´s a mix but anyway, it´s so vibrant, calling my name…and maybe yours 😉

    Purple…so royal and yet playful! Love the last two posts Nat.

  5. Danke, das hat wieder Spaß gemacht zu lesen…genau ich dachte auch sofort an lila…und an weiß (wenn du eh schon schwarz dabei hast ;-))

  6. Loved your posts on color! Made me think that black and white are sort of like the adults. All the other color children are running around on the canvas displaying all their glory and exuberence in their own personality and style, The adults come in to offer a little containment and accent. Thanks for making color so fun!

  7. I love how you describe the colors ………. is fabulous, and looking forward to receiving the next post.

  8. and that my colorfull friend, is how YOU convert people to color. 🙂

    (not many words, but lot’s of meaning in this comment)

  9. once again, love your talk about colors and the way YOU think about colors. Makes me smile 🙂

  10. This is a great idea.
    you could do white, even if it is a bit the same as black some people say it’s not a color. But there are a lot of other voices that are saying that white is the color that means pure, hope, innocence, clean, …

    Then there is pink that is totally “think pink”

    Red the color off passion and warmth

    Every color has it own personality I think.

  11. Wieder ein genialer Post. Wie wäre es mit lila, grau?? Liebe Grüße Birgit
