Coloring the Page: Orange
The “Descriptive Kaleidoscope” of color synonyms rolls on with today’s entry on ORANGE. For those just tuning in, these synonyms were compiled by a gentleman who is blind but had his sight until he was 11.
Check out the earlier entries here.
The list for orange is short, because some of the variations are already covered in the posts for “Red” and “Yellow.” But what better color than this to kick off Autumn?
Apricot: Moderate, light or strong orange to orange yellow
Burnt Orange: Dark brownish reddish orange
Ocher: Moderate orange yellow
Saffron: Strong to moderate orange yellow
Tangerine: Strong reddish orange to vivid orange
