Color is Power

Can you think of a work of art that relies heavily on the color blue? Color inspiration from art pieces can be powerful! We talk often about how different colors make us feel because our environment really does have an impact on our emotions. We love how artists use color-filled imagery to evoke a memory, emotion, or feeling.

Take The Bluebell by Emily Brontë for example. She so beautifully portrays images of colorful flowers as well as how nature often reflects the energy of the people it surrounds.

Color Inspiration from Art: THE BLUEBELL by Emily Brontë

The Bluebell is the sweetest flower
That waves in summer air:
Its blossoms have the mightiest power
To soothe my spirit’s care.

There is a spell in purple heath
Too wildly, sadly dear;
The violet has a fragrant breath,
But fragrance will not cheer,

The trees are bare, the sun is cold,
And seldom, seldom seen;
The heavens have lost their zone of gold,
And earth her robe of green.

And ice upon the glancing stream
Has cast its sombre shade;
And distant hills and valleys seem
In frozen mist arrayed.

The Bluebell cannot charm me now,
The heath has lost its bloom;
The violets in the glen below,
They yield no sweet perfume.

But, though I mourn the sweet Bluebell,
’Tis better far away;
I know how fast my tears would swell
To see it smile to-day.

For, oh! when chill the sunbeams fall
Adown that dreary sky,
And gild yon dank and darkened wall
With transient brilliancy;

How do I weep, how do I pine
For the time of flowers to come,
And turn me from that fading shine,
To mourn the fields of home!

Look, also, at Van Gogh’s Starry Night. According to an analysis on Artble, Van Gogh wrote to his brother about his works. In a the letter, Van Gogh comments: “I should not be surprised if you liked the Starry Night and the Ploughed Fields, there is a greater quiet about them than in the other canvases.
