Bright like the sun, and that of lovely lemons, yellow is a color of great confidence, optimism and radiance. In fact, being surrounded by yellow releases more serotonin, the feel-good chemical, in the brain and is a color oft selected by intellectuals. This luminous color features in art, one loved by artists in the Impressionist period and abstract artists. Yellow ochre pigment was one of the first colors used in art; in the Lascaux cave in France, is a painting of a horse that is 17,000 years old. Style Edit Yellow can be a tricky color to pair.
