2Colours are adjectives We use colours to describe various thingsColours always come after the word that they describeExamples:Un livre rouge (A red book)Un cahier violet (A purple notebook)Un gomme blanc ( A white eraser)
3If what is described is masculine, the color will be masculine. If what is described is feminine, then the color will become feminine as well.Masculine FeminineUn livre violet Une livre violeteUn gomme vert Une gomme verte
4Making colors feminine Most colors take an e in the feminine form except marron and chocolat. This is also the case for two-word colours such as bleu-marine(navy blue), vert-pale( light green).Those already ending in e in the masculine form do not change in the feminine.The one except is blanc. This changes to blanche not blance.
