How do you describe colors that are not the basic color wheel hues like red, blue, green, purple? For example, if I wanted to describe a pale peachy-pink? Rose is too broad. I am an artist and I want to be able to describe in French colors more specifically. Merci.
You are probably best to read and search on colour, paint, photography or art sites etc - art supply catalogues may give a range of colours. Whenever looking for specialised or technical vocabulary, it is usually better to search within the ‘field’, rather than on general sites.
