    Help with Brown

    I'm using this picture (as an attachment jpg), and I was going good until I got to the loaf of bread and the bag...

    What the heck color is brown?

    I want a dark, golden brown (like an appetizing loaf!) for the main loaf and a lighter golden brown for the indent parts of the loaf.

    Also, can you find a nice paper shopping bag color for me?

    Thanks a ton.

    Note:
    Sorry for the huge picture.

    There are lots of color sample tools online, such as:

    Perhaps take a photo of a color you like, save it to your computer, and then use a tool like Photoshop to crab the color value(s) in that image as your starting point.

    What you could do is to find a good sized picture of a golden brown loaf and use the colours and texture from that in your illustration.
    I dont think you will easily represent a good looking loaf in a solid colour of brown tbh.

    Suggestions:
    light colour #c2a770
    medium: #a4804e
    darker/golden #90581b

    What program are you using?

    Photoshop.

    ralph.m, I use Kuler regularly. I just couldn't figure out where/what color brown is...somewhere b/w yellow and orange?

    Thanks spike. I should have thought of eyedropping a picture.
