Psychological and Symbolic use of Color

Psychological - the color red invokes feeling of love and lust. Not only is the word there, but the coloring and the brightness of them standing out against the dark background emphasizes this.
Psychological - Green invokes envy and jealousy. A brightly painted peacock standing against a white rock formation makes everyone jealous of his beauty.
Symbolic - White is purity and death. In this painting depicting a dead Christ we see the pallor of his skin as light and deathly, but the artist managed to not make it grotesque, but rather enlightening and pure.
