Some years ago I did a blog post about what colour I “feel” and the same stands today of the colour I feel inside of me – its gold. I may have hints of other colours mingling into my base colour depending on my mood but its always the sameÂ colour I feel I am.
But what colour to choose to explain to others what I am…………………. when its describing myself as an “Erotic Artist” to them. And a female erotic artist at that.
Its taken me about three weeks to come to that conclusion. Why is it so important? You probably think, and I bet you think I’m daft putting so much importance to finding that colour, although its not taken every thinking minute of every day to come to the conclusion, just a sort of back thought that’s there whilst I go along through my days, wondering what it was.
The easiest way was to do it backwards.
And take out the colours it wasn’t…..
It wasn’t white, lemon yellow, mint green, emerald green, sage green, bottle green, infact any green at all, at all, nor most blues, not baby blue, sky blue, navy blue, Prussian blue (although that was the closest blue), or turquoise (my fav colour), or orange, or brown, or grey, never ever ever grey ever, nor black, or baby pink. Or lime green.
Nah, none of those.
Well. All the reds, obviously, most of the pinks, terracotta but not peach, add peach to the “not” list, purples, teal, yep lurrve teal, have I forgotten anything? Oh yes, gold, deep yellows but not ochres, although at a push ochres would be ok, not neutrals of mushroom, beige, stone, sand, cream. At them to the “not” list as well.
It’s narrowing down. Ok, to sum up…….
Reds, Pinks, Purples, Gold.
Ohhh, lovely colours, all of them.
And Gold’s there, yes, that base colour of me. But, I think not this time, no, it’s heading towards the red/blue side of the colour-wheel. And whilst I love red, it can be thought of as tooÂ strong and vibrant aÂ colour, the colour of war, and anger, so we’ll veer away from that one on this journey of self aware colouring. Ok, pinks and purples then. Ooohh………….like that one. But not delicate pinks, something with a bit of life about it, we’ll go for the stronger shade of cerise or fuchsia. Yep, sorted.
Except, it wasn’t.
Although I felt to start with that pink was going to be the answer, I felt that the message it was passing on was a little too girly, too loosely feminine in a carefree sort of way, which wasn’t really passing on the “business woman” aspect of myself.
Ok, what about the purples then?
MMm, Emperor Purple is too strong, lavender and lilac although gorgeous colours too weak for this instance. A mid purple, but not a cold one…….
Ah, got it.
And that is how I now feel a total empathy withÂ a colour that reminds me of Greek holidays.
Yep, its Aubergine.
Bet you weren’t expecting that one, were you? 🙂
