  'I try to assign a face to emotion'

Do you feel limited as you cannot see most of the colours?

Being able to see only a limited palette has actually ushered more 
freedom. Like, one cannot be lost in his own home no matter how small or 
big it is. I am at home when I spot yellow. The feeling when I see this 
colour in the set is similar to spotting your best friend in a strange 
city! I am only partially colour blind, not fully, and that is where all 
the drama unfolds. It would be right to say that more than colours, my 
interest is in processing emotions differently. Emotions are 
information. Awareness of your emotional responses help empower one's 
individuality. I try and assign a face to the emotion through my paintings.

Yellow Kind"?
