There are at least two paintings in my show that explore the yellow hues. When I bring people through my studio, these colours seem to have a very powerful effect. Even a mood enhancing effect? I wonder why? In Asia, Buddhist monks wear golden or ?yellow robes. When I am at the art shop, I find myself attracted to the yellow hues, especially cadmium yellow. I think this is a more intense yellow. This is a favourite mood elevating yet calming colour for me. I believe this is because it is strong in intensity (meaning emotionally energised) and not worn out or drained.
