Purple is the New Black.

No, of course it isn’t!

Nothing is the “New Black” - Purple is Purple – special in its own way. Purple is regal and tends to vibrate due to the mix of the colors: red and blue. The Red light waves and the Blue light waves clash and vibrate. Purple enhances your dreams and openness to new perceptions. In color theory {Although color theory principles first appear in the writings of Alberti (c.1435) and the notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci (c.1490), a tradition of "colory theory" begins in the 18th century, initially within a partisan controversy around Isaac Newton's theory of color (Opticks, 1704) and the nature of so-called primary colors.} a Purple is defined as any non-spectral color between violet and red. Purple is a mixture of red and blue light, whereas violet is a spectral color. Since using computers, it is possible to create a much brighter purple than with pigment, the equivalent color on a computer to the pigment color red-violet shown above would be electric purple.

I hope you have enjoyed this little essay on Purple (my favorite color).
