A to Z Challenge: Writing Colors - Wheat

We are on our way to the end of A to Z! How are you doing?

This year, I have been 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; why not take a look at them?

Today's color is: Wheat.

There's not much to say about this color for me. Not quite in the brown family, possibly in the white family. It is a fleshy tone, though. I feel like real wheat is a little more yellow. It's fairly neutral.

What do you think?


  1. Yeah, when I think of actual wheat I think of a more yellowish color. This does seem more like a flesh tone.

  2. Nice choice. I really like flesh-tone colors.

  3. Me too.. I was expecting more of a brown... perhaps 'cos I'm so used to my brown wheat bread... and now I'm wondering how natural my bread is :)

  4. Maybe in the yellow family? Makes me feel warm like sunshine on my face and sandy beaches...

  5. When I think of the color of wheat, beige comes to mind.
