Random information on the term “Gray shades”:

Payne’s grey is a dark blue-grey colour used in painting. It can be used as a mixer in place of black. Since it is less intense than black, it is easier to get the right shade when using it as a mixer. Originally a mixture of iron blue (Prussian blue), yellow ochre and crimson lake,[3] Payne’s grey now is often a mixture of blue (ultramarine or phthalocyanine) and black[4] or of ultramarine and Burnt Sienna.

The colour is named after William Payne, who painted watercolours in the late 18th century.

The first recorded use of Payne’s grey as a colour name in English was in 1835.[5]

The source of the colour displayed above is the Robert Ridgway color list, entered onto the Internet from his 1912 book Color Standards and Color Nomenclature.
