The painted desert, fresh fruits and vegetables, simple nature—the colors
that define these are the colors of the earth itself. From the warmth of the
red earth, to the turquoise of the American Southwest, to sun gleaming on
golden fields of wheat, earth colors connote reliable strength and a simple
life. Using attractive and rich earthy colors lends similar qualities to the
subject matter.
When a humble, earth-conscious message is needed, an earthy color palette
helps to convey a connectedness to the planet.
