Do you think grey is a negative colour?

Grey is the mix of white and black. Grey usually makes people think old, boring and maybe sad.

Is there anything positive about grey?

    Not negative at all although it does depend on how you use it. Grey can look pretty smart.  Offset with a brighter colour can make the brighter colour really pop.  Grey is actually a very useful colour.

    It’s a mid tone that can be made to be warm or cool by adding hues of blue or red for instance. 

    Cool colours recede warm colours project.

    Grey can be useful and its quite a challenge to draw using just grey

    Many painters mix grey from purple and yellow and white to make a warmer grey, orange and blue and white make a cooler grey. You could use either to prepare a canvas to paint over as a midtone.

    Grey is neither positive, nor negative, but a neutral color.  It's essential in art, and life as there are many grey areas in both.

    I believe its exactly the opposite.  Grey and grey scale are not negative nor boring.  They are used often in sketched artworks and graphic arts projects. In fact, in the interior design world, Grey is a very popular paint color that many people use instead of white or eggshell (off white).
