As so many colours can be shown on computers (usually millions of colours), new ways have to be created to describe them.
A set of names has been agreed for about 140 colours. Can you imagine that many colours?
A palette is a board with an arrangement of colours on it. Here is a typical computer application ‘colour palette’. Can you name some of the colours you see?
Here are the names of some of them: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Violet, Ivory, Beige, Silver, Gold, Azure, Bisque, Pink, Salmon, SkyBlue, Turquoise, Coral, Tan, Lime, Olive, Maroon, Crimson, Brown, Cyan (Aqua), Magenta (Fuchsia), DarkRed, DarkOrange, DarkGreen, DarkCyan, DarkBlue, DarkViolet, DarkMagenta, Purple.
Can you think of what might happen if you mixed some of these colours?
You could try this yourself with some paints!
