Mixing colors in books

In my previous post I mentioned that a writer using the colors that the soul can absorb has an advantage when compared to colorblind writers. A story with distinct colors has the advantage of a colored illustration compared with a black and white image or one created by an artist using shades of grey.

In this post I would like to emphasize that a writer mixes soul colors in his book the same way a painter mixes colors in his palette. The procedure is simple: at first one must determine which symbols help express the specific colors and then mix them in his story. Purple as a soul color can be expressed using symbols like toys, candies, colorful buildings, ballerinas, clowns, flamboyant paradise birds etc; red color can be expressed with ironsmiths, volcanoes, hunchbacked jesters, imposing castles, dwarfs, giants etc; blue color can be expressed with crystal, deep lakes, white birds, personified winds, unicorns etc.

By mixing certain symbols in a clever way the writer can achieve the exact hue he desires in his story and thus produce maximum effect through his work. The key to determining which symbol best produces a soul color is practice in recognizing colors in great artists work. The “Dance of the sugar plum fairy” in music, certain paintings of Mark Chagall like “The juggler” as well as “Midsummer night dream” of William Shakespeare are good examples of blue and purple hues while “Macbeth” is of course dark red. Of course opinions and tastes may vary when it comes to expressing different colors, but the truth is that art without soul colors is completely devoid of true substance.
