We're in the middle of a drought and oppressively hot weather in my neck of the woods. In honor of the rainbow -- it's been too long since I've seen one -- let's look at Roy G. Biv. That may ring a bell with some of you. It's sometimes used in school to help kids remember the seven colors of the rainbow in order. Use rainbow colors to heat up or cool down your desktop publishing projects.
Can you pick the 7 traditional rainbow colors from this stack of colors?
Orange can range from hot to warm and it can be summer fruit (oranges and grapefruit) or autumn veggies (pumpkins).
Yellow is sunshine. Although we often color the sun in shades of yellow, yellow is visually less hot than red or orange.
Blue comes in a variety of cool, calming shades.
Indigo is the rainbow bridge between blue and purply violet. In the rainbow it's more purple than the indigo blue of your denim jeans.
Violet is a medium purple in the rainbow but there are actually a range of colors called violet with some more pink and others with a bit more blue. Pick the violet that speaks to you.
