"I use colors to bring fine points of story and character." -Vincente Minnelli

C H A L L E N G E
The human eye is capable of distinguishing around 10 million different colors. The fascinating aspect of this is that according to the color theory, all of these colors are made out of a combination of three primary colors: red, blue, and yellow. The hue of the color depends on how much of each color is mixed together. When you mix all three of these colors together (like mixing paint), you then get black. An absence of these colors gives you white.

While the colors are easy to see, what can difficult about them is describing these colors. This month, the A&G Staff are curious to see how you would describe a color without naming the actual color. You may choose any color you want and describe it. However, you may only do so in 150-300 words.

R E Q U I R E M E N T S
+ This is a prose prompt.

Sounds like a very fun challenge! 😊
Only one question though, when we describe a color, can we remind of all sorts of things colored the color we are describing? Like, if we describe yellow, say something about the sun, if we talk about green, mention grass etc?

@Nevaeh-Raven You may, as long as it isn't something like "sun yellow". Think of it has more of a ... you're trying to describe the color to someone who has never seen colors before. How would you describe it to them?

Along these lines, I guess we couldn't describe green as 'that color one obtains when mixing blue and yellow' right? Our description is to be devoid of color words that might also describe the color since the person has never seen color before?

@ThestyCauldron Exactly! There are plenty of other ways to describe color, without naming the color.

@dragonpickle A prose prompt just means it's like regular writing. Like how a book or fan fiction is written.

@Graciesnake What do you associate with the color your trying to describe? What emotions does it evoke? It's those types of questions that you'll need to ask yourself.

If you want to include it either at the end or at the beginning that's up to you.

For example if it was the colour green, could you use emerald? Or is that disallowed?
