Colours Inspire- Take a notice!


( Picture from my kitchen counter)

Colours can inspire you in many big ways. The picture at the top was taken immediately when I noticed joy in my mood and I wanted to share with you power of colours. This also makes the colours to be used specifically for specific occasions and tasks. It is a non verbal communication that can bring a change from situation to situation. They have a healing power and make you journey of life empowered.

  • They can inspire you in your LEARNING,  CREATIVITY and CONFIDENCE levels.
  • They influence your moods.
  • Colour deprivation can lead to be non inspiring and non stimulating in positive actions

Have you ever noticed when you are feeling low or stressed, colours can bring a a change in the mood. Even though it could be momentary, they can help in bringing a change in your mind set. When you are having a stressful conversation, that could relate to work/home/relationships bring your notice to the colours around you and experience the change in your mind set.

  • Yellow is one of my favorite colour as it brings positive feeling and encourages creativity.


  • Red creates alertness, excitement and energize you.
  • Blue creates sense of well being and inhibits your appetite.
  • Brown brings a sense of relaxation and reduces fatigue 
  • Orange increases your alertness.
  • Green makes you calm.
  • Off white helps in maintaining attention.
  • Purple colour makes you calm.

I am always smittened by the beauty of the lotuses. From my childhood memories I remember gazing at these with my siblings at a nursery and then dad had planted one in a home made pond, making the garden look serene. This has inspired me to paint many lotuses especially in medium oils. Each tells a story raising their beautiful faces above the stagnant waters.The above painting was painted many years ago when I had developed my own style in watercolous. Now that when i am towards creating more transparency through watercolours, I want to paint more lotuses in this media. I did not spare a moment two years ago when I had written the poem ‘The Lotus Pond’ and combine with my painting.

I cherish it 🙂 as I love synergizing my write ups with my paintings.

Let me know what you think when we can combine our thoughts with our paintings. Like it , leave a comment please 🙂
