Hi there. :) Welcome back to the A to Z Challenge!
This year, I am providing different colors for descriptive purposes in writing using the website Color-ize to look at an alphabetical list of colors that we can use instead of using the same basic colors we know off the top of our heads. One color can come in so many shades, so why not take a look at them? :)
Today's color is: Gamboge
Okay, I've never heard of this color, and if you use it in a story, more power to you. It actually reminds me of goldenrod, which also starts with G, so win-win! It's a beautiful color, and the name gamboge actually reminds me of Africa for some reason. Probably because of Gambia. It's not quite orange, not quite yellow (and actually, this is probably a half-shade darker than a "yellow" school bus), and it's a fairly cool tone. Wheat fields, sunset...that's what comes to mind.
