Color Wheel: Magenta

This color wheel was inspired the above video, Wayne the Stegosaurus. Hard not to be inspired with a dinosaur in the mix! 


Magenta is a violet-red hue named after an Italian city. This bold color was a favorite of artist Henri Matisse and probably also flamingos. A bit of an oxymoron in terms of color psychology,  magenta is thought of as both harmonious and non-conformist.  Whatever it makes you feel, magenta is a great color for getting into a summer mindset. Maybe think about whipping up some pink lemonade or hanging up some incredibly chic plastic pink flamingos! You can find a great magenta hued drink recipe by clicking here.
