Helping you to bring in the New year and to celebrate the entire holiday season, we offer you 50 shades of green and gift you with some fresh lighting ideas for working with this color. Green is actually a wavelength of light. Visible light is perceived as spectral colors, which are often divided into named colors. Traditional colors include: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet, with red, yellow and blue being what artist’s consider to be primary colors. Green is the color between blue and yellow on the spectrum of visible light. It is evoked by light with a predominant wavelength of roughly 495–570 nm. It is also considered worldwide – as a healing color. Standard green often correlates to the note ‘C’, 527.35 Hertz and 517.03 nanometres.

After all, tis the season to at least think about it!
