Tip: If you are serious about improving your vocabulary, then Troy and I highly recommend you try the popular vocabulary program, Ultimate Vocabulary. Click Ultimate Vocabulary for further information.*
Here's a big list of colour names that covers the purples and browns, along with what each shade or tint looks like, to help expand your vocabulary and brighten and enliven your writing and speech.
To make it really easy to learn these words, simply copy and paste this list into Ultimate Vocabulary, and use the program's special functions to help you practise and learn them easily and quickly.
