Fiery Red and Yellow. Primary, heartstopping, but of course, this isn’t just one colour, and like the new black, it doesn’t really exist. All in my head, but that’s the point, it’s my version of the colour, or the combination of colours that go to make this up.

Ooh and look, I managed to sneak a bit of orange in there too, just because I felt like it, and looked back at the picture and then felt validated.

These colours are just made to go together, always linked by the use of fire, that most primeval and basic element. Man must always have loved this colour combination, the comfort that it brings, and also power. There’s no surprise that red is a powerful colour, it’s the ultimate power, Fire.

And yellow and orange just tag along behind…in my head.
