    degree of color


    I wonder what adjectives native speakers use to describe color with respect to the degree of it? It's Ok to say "light color, light green and etc"(I guess this one is probably right), but what about the opposite? Is it "heavy" or "deep" or "dark"? I am not not sure.

    Thank you!
