Writer Creates “Colour Thesaurus” to help you name Every colour imaginable!

Why didn’t they think of this sooner!!

All those days trying to describe the colours of the sunset, nature in general, people, clothes… I sure could have used this!

This amazing author and illustrator, Ingrid Sundberg, has come up with an brilliant infographic chart for people like me who at times struggle desperately with colour names.

Take a look at the chart below:
