How to Describe Fall Colors And Create Art With Them

How do you describe the colors of a season?More specifically, how do you describe the colors of fall?You might think that you just need to go outside and look, and you would be right. But looking isn't all of it. You have to know what to look for.Describing the colors of fall is particularly difficult because there is a conflict between visual colors and emotional colors.Between bon fires, trees that glow red in the sunlight, and warm orange and yellow tones that are cast across the sky earlier in the day by that beautiful autumn sun, there is no doubt that fall makes us think of warm colors.This influences fashion choices that leads us to choose scarlet scarfs, dark forest green coats, and rich brown sweaters.But there is a problem there.Even though we've only been thinking of warm colors, the clothing items of choice are to fight off cold.That brings us to the colors that we feel, or emotional colors. The cold northern wind, plants dying, and freezing nights coming sooner each and every day, all cause us to think of frosty blues and pearly whites.All of these colors can be used to create stunning pieces of art that describe fall on the nose. However, you have to be careful because it is easy to accidentally portray a different season if you don't use the colors right.
