Hi everyone, I've just sign up to this great site and this is my first topic. Can you suggest a few articles about psychology of color, with web examples if possible? I was googling for a while and have not found anything good so far.

I wrote an article on Colour Psycology on my blog a few months ago: How colours affect moods, how brands use colours for marketing all that kind of thing. http://explainafide.com.au/business-of-art-blog/2012/02/color-psychology/

I highly recommend James Gurney's blog. He tends to cover many many subjects related to many aspects of Art/Painting but he is very informative and really does know color. By the way he is good friends with Thomas Kinkade, they wrote a book together on sketching years ago.

I'll second the James Gurney recommendation. Also for some independent research, maybe look at films/paintings/photographs that have similar desired emotional reactions?

You can start by going here: Color Worqx

And go here for web design: Color Theory for Designers - The Meaning of Color

Here is a great documentary (podcast audio) from CBC Radio called "The Power of Colour"

Tracy, Seamless was written before tablets were invented. It was never intended to be used on tablets. Even if you could download and install it, it would not be usable because of movement conflicts between touch sensors and item controls. Sorry! It's for desktop computer use only.
Also, Seamless is a Flash application, which is not usable on many tablets without extreme intervention.

Fret not lovers of colour. Woodland Flower has transformed into a carnation, a reincarnation to be exact :)

Hi Mei. I agree with you about Sue going being depressing. I'm gutted myself. She was lovely and I'll really miss her. Do you know what happened?
