What is the opposite of brown?

And what would its meaning be? Brown signify earth, soil and dirt, so the opposite would be something clean and artificial

    brown is dark orange
    the opposite of orange is a shade of blue known as azure
    so the opposite of brown would be dark azure

      i think of cyan when i think of clean/artificial

      wouldnt the opposite be a lighter azure if its a darker orange? (Cyan)

      Dark azure gives me an uncanny sense of artificiality, like it's something beautiful but also completely soulless and devoid of human emotions, like an android.
      It really contrasts brown, which is filthy but also a color of life and warmth.

        Yes, green can represent life that comes from death, it is a part of how we see brown. However, green is not clean, so it doesn't contrast in that regard. Plus, water is a necessary part of life's equation that shouldn't be forgotten.

        [...]
        I like your take. However, there is another way to look at things. Another sort of blue, cyan, is primary when working with additive color. It incorporates equal parts green and blue and is the brightest possible color. I associate it with computers and technology, it's a color we didn't see before such things.

        Almost nothing in nature is actually blue. It's usually dark blue. Pure blue in nature is almost always a bad sign, like this bright cyan lake so toxic it eats birds that land on it ALIVE. https://duluthreader.com/articles/2016/12/14/107612-lessons-from-the-most-toxic-open-pit-copper-mine

            The opposite of Cyan is pure Red, not brown, so that's not it even though the shade is beautiful.

            technically, the symbolism is close, since red correspond to the very life in our blood, while cyan is, as you said, often something artificial and correspond to technology, so something lifeless

            Any shade of blue can be considered lifeless to be honest (the sky itself isn't alive and the sea isn't either, they just both have organisms live in them)
            Don't get me wrong, it's beautiful, but the correspondence is certainly not life

            Right, I usually think of blue as a better opposite to red than cyan. It's a rare pigment in nature, usually found through refraction rather than diffraction.

            The problem lay in how we define colors, Cyan is sometimes mistaken for a light shade of Blue, and if we were to follow that logic then Yellow should be called a light shade of Red, get what I mean?

            It gets even worse when you look at our linguistic usage of colors across humanity. The things that stand out in people's lives become words and that varies from culture to culture. Japanese famously didn't have a word for green, instead using aoi to mean both green and blue. Midori, the word for forest, was brought over by U.S. teachers as a stand in for green after the war.

            Plus, if you consider how biology and expectation change the perception of light things get even more subjective. This is exactly why we reach for symbolism for more meaning. Sometimes deeper truths are found, sometimes only illusions.

            I agree, I also think that the fact people have trouble properly understanding what Magenta is in comparison to other colors means there's inherently something wrong in how we understand colors, something there waiting to be solved

          • 3 weeks ago

            In semantic set theory we think of words as sets of vector relationships mapped in a high dimensional space. Some words are specialized for industry or science and they change little. Magenta however came about from the invention of a new dye, and was named after a bloody battle. It quickly divorced itself from its history as similar colors were given the same name in common usage. So between this and its recent invention (mid 19th century) it runs into one big problem. It's vector is now too similar to red's to form a consistent unique understanding in people's minds.

      This because light emitters cannot produce brown.
      They make a dark orange, and context makes it brown.

    Brown is just dark orange. It's not a real color, just something brains see to help parse the natural world better. It's also the loudest most dissonant color. We associate it with filth, so it's no wonder we strongly distinguish it from orange which is a sign of danger.

    For these reasons its opposite is blue. Far from illusory, it's primary. Far from dissonance and abrasiveness, blue it's calming. Plus blue is the compliment to orange on the color wheel.

    Brown refers to any sufficiently dark and/or dull colour within the hue band from fuchsia/maroon (reddish purples) through to lime/olive (yellowish greens), passing through all the warm colours inbetween - red, orange and yellow.

    This means that only pure green, pure purple and the entire blue range cannot form an adjacent brown. So these colours are the collective opposite of "brown", especially in a bright, light, vibrant and bold form.

    If you had to narrow brown down to its most representative colour, it would be a dark dull orange, and its opposite is a sky blue.

      you got it wrong, any hue from cyan up to blue is opposite to brown, brown is, from a technical point of view, a dark shade of orange, what is orange made of? Red, but with a little bit of Green present, and no Blue present whatsoever
