|Dress Fabric, brocaded silk, Spitalfields London, 1720-1730|
I have picked up three colours from the image above, to be my focus point.
Green –Red – Yellow.,
A bit of research later and this is what I have discovered:
Green is life and renewal. Abundant in nature, green signifies growth, renewal, health, and environment. Green is a restful color. Because of all the green in nature the color is reminiscent of Spring. Green is a colour that has warming and cooling effect. The color green denotes balance, harmony, and stability.
Yellow is a cheerful, sunshine colour. It is a warm color that signifies hope and happiness Yellow shines with optimism, enlightenment, and happiness. Shades of golden yellow carry the promise of a positive future.
It is said that Yellow is a colour that stimulates the nervous system, activates the memory and encourages communication
Red is a warm, positive colour which is thought to be energizing. It is a colour that excites the emotions and provides us with motivation to take action.
It denotes ambition and determination and can give confidence to those who are shy or lacking in will power.
The materials I engaged to create my interpretation of the dress fabric in the image is:
