4. The emotion colours convey:
The emotion and meanings people give to colours vary a lot in different cultures. For a designer or freelance illustrator, it’s best to understand the culture your design is going to be shown, to help you know what colours to choose and convey your desired message to the viewers. For artists, the audience tries to see the piece from the eyes of the artist, so their cultural perceptions are sort of ignored to discover the meaning of the piece of art.
As a designer or illustrator, you are going to have to work a bit more to understand your audience.
In Colour combinations, see it with your eyes and ask yourself if you like it. Remember, fewer colours are better. In graphic design, you don’t need to combine more than 3-4 colours, yes, like how you do with typography fonts.
