If you want to show anxiety and tension use complex, fractional, color compositions and colors such as bright yellow, purple, dark blue, red, black. They will make work dynamic.

​ Interest and surprise arise when perceiving dynamic, complex, asymmetric, curved, contrasting-harmonious compositions. Using bright saturated color tones on our works.
