Red

RED is a powerful color that has been used throughout history, and is associated with love, passion, and courage. In Asian countries, it symbolizes happiness and good fortune.

“Red Barn” – Samantha Buller

RED is a powerful color that has been used throughout history and is associated with love, passion, and courage. In Asian countries, it symbolizes happiness and good fortune. The quest for this color was an obsession that involved many empires and spawned many novel-worthy intrigues in the pursuit of this most desirable color on earth.RED is a “fast” color, it has a dominant wavelength that reaches our eye before other colors. It stands out from all backgrounds.RED sunsets, strawberries, scarlet slippers; royal capes, rubies, and cardinals- all are infused with this special color and used by all artists.

Alizarin crimson, cadmium, vermillion, and Venetian red are just some of the many shades of red that can inspire your creation. Celebrate RED in your artwork, use this dominant hue as an accent, background, or subject. From Ruby to Lava, we’re looking for Red!

Submit your vision, and create an artwork with one of the most emotional colors in the spectrum. Be prepared to turn up the Heat when we show your fired-up works of art with the dominant color RED.  Send submissions through Entrythingy
