the color blue as well as purple was a color that previously had no name, they were named as wine, incredible as it may seem, the night skies or the seas were called with phrases like: tonight we can witness the tones Fruits of a Harvest in the Milky Way
violet. lavender. lilac.
plums. blackberries fruits. black current juice.
A 'cool' color (as opposed to warm), color of royalty and wealth. The color of the sky.
Dark. Juicy. Seductive. Simultaneously cold enough to suggest danger, but warm enough to draw you in.
Colour is interesting, as there's no guarantee someone sees colour the same way as you do. But that was my poetic attempt!
A deep dark tone noted for spiritual symbols in the Bible. This color is mentioned in Exod 26:31, Exod 26:31, Acts 16:14, and Esther 8:15.
Oh yes, the color to associate...
A "God-Awful" choice of color for a vehicle owned by John.
A long forgotten color in a song from the 1960s that mentioned people eaters.
A significant medal of heart and honor distributed to brave and wounded military personnel.
One of the two original colors of the Los Angeles Kings jersey of the NHL
The rock and roll band from the 1960s that was called Deep Something.
One of the most difficult (yet not the most difficult) color-words to rhyme with...
A six letter word with the consonants p, r, p, l,
A six letter word with the vowels: u, and e.
I would describe purple as the rich color of eggplant. . .
A combination of the colors red and blue. Also a former symbol for royalty due to the price to make the color before the discovery of being able to make the color from combining the two others.
A colour between red and violet, that is associated with Old English royalty, as well as in christian priests. It was originally sourced from a snail, but I can't remember the name. It is common in beetroot, and seen in eggplant.
The colour of Natural Amethyst (precious stone), Phantom masks, Brinzal or Egg plant.
Interesting idea...I know a blind person who detests descriptions for things which use analogies and so on. He always wants emotional experience of something visual, not an attempted word transcript of a colour, for example, which means nothing to him and leaves him cold.
So my stab at purple for someone who has no idea what purple is:
I'm enveloped in darkness yet warmth. My mind spins off to infinite possibilities.
A movie with Whoopi and Oprah.
Plum, grape, eggplant.
A vibrant sky.
A bold look.
The maple leaves amidst the Fall colors.
A raw amethyst, a birthstone.
A combination of primaries red and blue.
Deep, inviting, warm, meditative, constant, natural, beautiful, infinite, calming, vibrant, sensual. That is what comes to mind. Now I feel good just thinking about it. Thank you.
It is spiritual, regal and powerful. The colour of kings and mythical lands.
Suitably warm but also cool. Balanced, beautiful and empowering.
The caress of midnight soft velvet draped around me, enveloping me in utter warm darkness. Its aura drawing me in utter peace and majesty. The color of majesty combined with utter and decadent sensuality.
The color is cool and denotes positivity and peace. It is vibrant yer eye soothing. A rich hue, great to paint walls.
The color purple can be described as mysterious yet comforting.
The silk that drops from the thunder clouds, the vapor mixed with electric sparks coursing through the seas.
soft, cheerful, feminine color which can blend in or go with most all other colors in home interior and in nature
Just before midnight closes its eyelids tight in blackness, she dances across the starry skies like a fairy gypsy bearing the gift of perfect color.
The shade of the sky just before nightfall, before darkness overwhelms; it is an empowering, heavy color, enveloping from all sides, the color of the darkest parts of the ocean and the color of a queen’s tears. It’s the shade of loneliness, of flowering irises, and it’s the kind of color that’s there whether or not you want it to be. It’s the hue of bravery; of valor; and of strength.
A crown being placed onto your head as you gaze at your subjects. The color of royalty.
