The power of colour

Visual inspiration comes from so many different things, and colour plays a major part in that, it has a huge impact on our emotions. Take the colour red for example, it evokes thoughts and feelings of love and passion and yet it also suggests danger, anger and rage. The Spanish film director Pedro Almodovar uses colour as an artist would in his work, for example how he showcases the colour red.

Here are a few stills from his films to demonstrate that ability, and then the floral displays that it inspired.
