Hey there! I am back again with the second creative prompts in my series about colours of the spectrum. In line with yesterday’s colour red, today’s theme is ‘green”. Why green and not a primary colour? Well, I decided to go with the RCG colour model, of which green is a primary additive colour. (see RGB color model article on Wikipedia for further information.)
Green is one of those odd colours of the spectrum that tends to evoke more negative than positive connotations due to its connection with plants. Even in the desert, we see the thick green skin of plants such as the various species of the Cactus. We also tend to view a lack of green plant life as a sign of drought. It is also a colour heavily tied to blue due the blue being the symbolic colour of water.
No visual prompts today. I’d recommend visiting nearby parks and spending time in a garden or greenhouse. That should allow you to take in a sense that would otherwise be ignored – smell.

- Quote prompts: “Green is the prime color of the world, from which its loneliness arises.” Pedro Calderon de la Barca quote, “For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider, every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver.” Martin Luther quote, “No water, no life. No blue, no green.” Sylvia Earle quote, “Life expectancy would grow in leaps and bounds if green vegetables tasted as good as bacon.” Doug Larson quote, courtesy of BrainyQuote
