Describe the color purple. Bonus points for they who use actual images ALONG with their descriptions. Keep it to just a short paragraph -two paragraphs tops!
Open the creativity jars!
(ps.. don't write a bunch of hogwash that just doesnt make sense. Seriously think of what the color purple means to you and then describe it)
Reminds me of James Clerk Maxwell the 19th century physicist and mathematician who discovered that all the colours in nature are derived from the three primary colours of blue, red and yellow. So blue and red made purple on his colour wheel and in 1861 he produced the first ever colour photograph. It was of a tartan ribbon. Highly appropriate for a famous Scotsman :-)
A novel by Alice Walker published in 1982 and adapted to a 1985 Stephen Spielberg film, The Color Purple follows a story told in a series of letters by an adolescent black girl in Georgia trying to cope with the repeated sexual abuses she suffers from her stepfather.
Personally, I thought Posessing the Secret of Joy was a much better read.
I'm assuming you want a description of the color purple... as in literally. Correct??
The color purple,
It's pleasing to the eyes, often seen in dark images. The hew is magnificently flush. Placed upon the back of kings, it stands for royalty as well as happiness. Purple makes up the most petite flowers to the large mountains that it covers. Lavenders and Violets fall neatly in place around the color. The first color of a rainbow, followed by blue then on to green.
hmm. Maybe that explains it.
While there is not an absolute definition it is the color attribute of light that has a wavelength of around 400nm to 440 nm. The color gradually changes to blue with an increasing wavelength and to the ultraviolet with decreasing wavelength. The endpoints are not fixed and are rather arbitrary and objective.
Purple is the colour of indulgence; it was once considered a colour that only royality would be allowed to wear. It is the colour of velvet, violets and the deep softness of iris flowers.
Purple is the colour of shadows on the snow. It is the hidden corners of a room at dusk.
Purple is the colour that a rebelious older woman desires to wear; maybe to let the world know that in her heart she is still alive.

I love red and purple. I also love candy, which the best flavors always seem to be cherry (red) and grape (purple). That's why I like red and purple so much. ;-)
