    Red, but lately been cheating on it with yellow. Green has been my side-color off and on for a while too. Green doesn't know about red or yellow. So shhh.

    I think blended colors bring more subtlety in beauty. It's like a fine color.

    I used to really like blue. Just your standard blue, nothing fancy, nothing royal, just a solid blue color. I still like it a lot, but I I've been leaning towards black the last couple of years.

    What I like about black is it has this comfort to me. I feel it's a blank canvas like white, but isn't glaring and harsh. It's how I tend to paint my internal emotional realm. It starts as black, but then color is added as I feel and discover other emotions. Black to me, is the context, it makes any other color radiant in its own unique way. If possible, I would shine a light through this canvas, with black being completely opaque, and any color smeared across, a different opacity depending on the thickness of paint. What you'd see is this vibrancy and dance of emotion.

    What does this say about my outlook? Perhaps that I see darkness, penetrated by light filled with color. As literal and plain as that sounds, it's a mindset that I've come to after years of childhood awkwardness and feeling lost.

    Superficially, I look great in black, so there's that

    I generally prefer many colors altogether, but my preference overall tends to range within rich, bold colors like different shades of red, purple, magenta, and blues.

    I like colors that are exaggerated in real life, ones that will make something pop to emphasize the intensity. I'm not really a fan of earth tones and pastels, as I think they are too dull on their own. I would say I am an aficionado of otherworldy outlooks, like surrealism and fantasy, something that is seen through a different lens and not one directed from reality. It brings a whole new perspective and one that keeps me engaged and fascinated, like a child lost in awe and wonder seeing the world for the first time.

    And black because of my darker, youthful days to represent the tragic Pierrot that was wreaking havoc on my soul.

    But on a serious note, I like contrast between extremes, like a dark, almost black color against a pastel shade (probably the only exception where I will solely allow a pastel shade be among my presence ). It brings a whole new dimension and provides depth. It reflects the deep, dark mysteries in contrast to the luminous, vivacity of life; the negative with the positive, the yin and yang, or like the comedy and tragedy masks. It gives balance and life. I personally think the best works of art integrate a scale of such dichotomies, as it gives that great amount of depth and complexity I'm looking for to stimulate my interest. This is one rule I try to incorporate in my own artwork because I believe it does make a tremendous difference in show quality. But of course, this is all my own opinion on the matter and I probably didn't make any sense whatsoever.
    Thank you for this fantastic post! I was hoping I would receive more answers like this. I like that you prefer contrast between colors since I prefer light and shadow myself as it pertains to architecture and photography. You can have the most boring subject or space, and have the entire scene brilliant with shades and shapes.

    Why do you like this particular color? What does it mean to you? Why do you associate with this color? Are you able to pinpoint why you have this perception of that color?

    If you like more than one color, why is that? Is one color not capable of expanding over several ideals? Several perceptions?
    My favorite color is application dependent.
