Color your World: Sunset orange

The color sunset is a reddish shade of orange. It is a representation of the average color of clouds when the sunlight from a sunset is reflected off of them.

The first recorded use of sunset as a color name in English was in 1916.

Sunset orange was formulated as a Crayola color in 1997.IMG_0890

Sunset is about my favorite time of day, when all the deep colors come out to play……
