Golden olive (PANTONE 16-0639 TPX). I was looking for the perfect color name to represent this backdrop. When I found golden olive, I knew it was the perfect shade of green. The color changes as the light changes, more than I'm used to.
I played around with shades of green complemented by the white of flowers. Green represents nature so using natural products to create these images seemed like the best fit.
Green is often considered one of the most soothing colors, would we say that about all shades of green though? Soothing is usually paired with a sage or moss green. Neon greens are electric and jungle greens make me think of life + energy.
Green can represent the environment or the military or envy. A color with many feelings, it's always been my personal favorite. When the trees turn green around here at the end of May, I can't get over the beauty.
