Does anyone know what colors( excluding black and gray) would communicate a solemn mood?
I thought maybe different shades of yellow.
For the reason blue and reds did not make sense nor did green, and violet is associated with royal, or majestic, so neither did that.
Well If you use dark dark violet which is almost black in shading or a green shading like...spinich green wouldn't that create a somber mood?
(I don't specifically paint so I'm relying on what I've seen in paintings as I mainly draw ;D)
Think about the songs you have heard, "Am I Blue" "Mood Indigo"
Shades of blue , tending toward the blue greys and purples have always been associated with being unhappy or solemn.
