Colors can help create a mood or a feeling within an image. Soft pastels and lighter colors such as blue, green, and purple, give an image a soft and gentle feeling. By contrast, bright colors like red, orange, and gold convey power or control. Some colors induce a feeling of pleasure in the observer. When an affectively positive, color is viewed after a less-pleasant color, it produces more pleasure than when viewed by itself, which is an effect known as affective contrast enhancement.
In this series, Noa, the model, poses with different colored fabrics. Soft-colored and bright-colored fabrics are alternated to show that the mood of the portrait does appear to change with the color of the fabric.
