I have made a collection of named colors gleaned from HTML color names, Pantone swatches, stones, jewels, flowers, foods, minerals, pigments, and paints. Some of them I made up out of whole cloth. Each color is presented as its hexadecimal code. Use some in your fiction! Sample color names:
- Flesh of the peach
- Skin of the peach
You can use the complete interactive version here.
Download the whole shebang as a PNG file. Please share it! Below is a cropped bit from the reds section.
One thought on “Color names for writers”
I love these. So much more descriptive than the ordinary color names, as long as we don’t send our readers to the dictionary. 🙂
