Absence of all colour is colour black!

When people speak of opposites, it is usually in terms of black and white. Black, and its opposite white, represents polarities. Black absorbs all aspects of light. While white reveals, black conceals. It has come to mean hidden, fearful or bad experience. It is linked to the unknown or the unseen.
In times of fear and uncertainty black contains the energy of the threatening unknown. 

Do we associate black as a positive colour? Maybe.. maybe not. But in a positive state, black is a restful emptiness into which anything may emerge and disappear once again. It is also mysterious, providing a sense of potential and possibility.

Like it or hate it but without black, no colour has depth. But if you mix black with everything, suddenly there is shadow – no, not just shadow but fullness. You have to be willing to mix black into your palette if you want to create something that’s real
