Russet, It’s not just potatoes
Today, I will be discussing handmade artwork in various shades of brownish red. More specifically, the colors russet, burgundy, and maroon. Russet is a lighter brownish red of the russet potato where the color derives it’s namesake. To me the color is slightly more red and dark than a brand new penny but not as dark as red rust. Russet red is also represented in various hues in autumn leanves.
Burgundy is prestige and elegance
Burgundy is decidedly darker and more rich than russet. It has a hint of violet. It is the color of some red wines and roses. It exudes wealth, prestige, and elegance. It looks most spectacular when accessorised with any iridescent gold hue. \
Maroon is dark and deep
Maroon is definately a dark red. It is red that has been darkened with black or brown. It usually does not have violet or blue tones to it. It may remind one of oxblood or Christmas decorations.
