List of colorsFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaSee also: List of colors (compact), List of color palettes, and Index of color-related articlesColor is an important part of the visual arts, fashion, interior design and many other fields anddisciplines.The following is a comprehensive list of colors that are included in the Wikipedia articles aboutcolor. A large portion of the color swatches below are taken from domain-specific namingschemes such as X11 or HTML4. RGB values are given for each swatch because such standardsare defined in terms of the sRGBcolor space. It is not possible to accurately convert many ofthese swatches to CMYK values because of the differing gamuts of the two spaces, but the colormanagement systems built into operating systems and image editing software attempt suchconversions as accurately as possible.The HSV (hue, saturation, value) color space values, also known as HSB (hue, saturation,brightness), and the hex triplets (for HTML web colors) are also given in the following table.Colors that appear on the web-safe color palette — which includes the sixteen named colors —are noted. (Those four named colors corresponding to the neutral grays can be rendered withany hue value, which is effectively ignored — i.e., left blank.)The appearance of the actual color swatches displayed below will look different on yourcomputer depending on many parameters, such as the properties of your display device, yourcolor management settings and the viewing surround conditions, most notably the color spectrumof the illumination source. Also, Color naming is ambiguous and arbitrary, and varies amongpeople and cultures, with no single swatch adequately representing any particular color name.Computer displays have a somewhat limited gamut, so many colorfulpigments cannot berepresented on a screen at all and computer simulation of the natural world is, at best, a roughapproximation.

BrownMain article: BrownBrown colors are dark or muted shades of reds, oranges, and yellows on the RGB and CMYKcolor schemes. In practice, browns are created by mixing two complementary colors from theRYB color scheme (combining all three primary colors). In theory, such combinations shouldproduce black, but produce brown because most commercially-available blue pigments tend tobe comparatively weaker; the stronger red and yellow colors prevail, thus creating the followingtones.
