Bringing Colour Theory into Charlie’s Childhood Drawing’s

We decided to use a lot of ‘danger’ colour’s in Charlies childhood drawings such as red,black and yellow. We wanted to express a troubled childhood.Even in happier drawings we included yet or black to express the forever present mental problems.

We also used a lot of blues as blue can be used to express sadness and melancholy. It can also be used as a calming and peaceful colour.

Here are some examples

Even in his adult years, all letters from his father were in blue ink but Charlie still uses black, in his very last letter from Charlie when he has found peace and happiness we used blue ink, as a small detail to express feeling safe and secure at last.

Here are some examples
