Color affects moods, and artists convey many different feelings through the palette they select. An energetic color, orange evokes excitement. It takes its name from the fruit and, in Hindu thought, represents the second chakra. According to psychics, an orange aura represents intellectual ambition. In the Thai solar calendar, yellow is associated with Monday, and to the ancient Maya, it denoted "South." A highly visible color, yellow creates a happy, sunny ambience.
Novica's collection of orange paintings showcases a wide variety of styles. Cooled with green, the fiery tones permeate K. Baka's African landscapes and portrait paintings. Rawat Vongla surrounds Buddha images with a halo of golden light in reference to the master's state of spiritual enlightenment. Peruvian artist Elizabeth Rodriguez combines orange and yellow with ardent red for geometric canvases of incandescent beauty. Her abstract oil paintings are complex and compelling. India's Sadhana paints the Hindu deity Ganesha in warm, glowing tones, and Ida Ratna Ningrum uses yellow and orange to evoke Balinese sunshine. Elephant artists such as Look and Wannalee often work in yellow and orange; their paintings make beautiful and unique gifts.
We hope you enjoy their warmth as you explore our original orange paintings from around the world!
