Gray is a obnoxious choice after the terrible year that we were force to live in 2020 that felt like gray itself, why keep dragging this stagnant isolated energy to the new year. As they say" new year, new beginning"
|Yellow and Purple complementary combination Color Pigment|
Gray is color that we can find scarcely in nature, some rocks are gray, metals , some animal skin like wolfs squirrels, racoons etc. and on some trees.
Gray is the absorption of two complementary colors; Which are: Yellow and Purple, Red and Green and Blue and Orange. When you mix them they may not seem gray to the naked eye, because the gray that your mind is used to see is composed with Black and White.
|Complementary Colors Pigment|
Gray, depending on the shade, can reflects emotions of void, lack of emotion, emptiness, isolation, detachment and could be depressing by itself. Making gray the awful choice for the color of the year.
