Every color seems to have multiple shades. Red is definitely not an exception!
Red comes in tomato red, rose, burgundy, wine, red, and more! Like the versions of black, I have to sometimes put some of the shades next to each other to see the differences in color. The colors I have vary in some cases by only a slight difference – for example wine is similar to burgundy. Red is much brighter than tomato red. Add to that the texture differences between cotton lycra, french terry, and rib knit and you have a bouquet of possibilities!
Shades of Red:
- Tomato Red
- Hot Pink
In color theory, a tint is the mixture of a color with white, which increases lightness, and a shade is the mixture of a color with black, which reduces lightness.
Red is a primary color, then white, black, or other colors can be mixed in to make another shade. I also have a mix of colors in blues, yellows and even in whites and blacks.
