Full Answer

Pink has many variations, from very light to dark. The name of a pink often compares the color to a familiar item, such as a berry, watermelon or salmon. A third color can be introduced into the mix of red and white to develop different shades of pink. A touch of black darkens the tint. The addition of a small amount of another color, such as blue, yellow or green, adds an undertone of that color to the pink tint.
