QUESTION: How do you indicate that a color is dark?

ANSWER:
The common way to indicate darkness of a color is to sign "dark" before doing the color sign.

You can sign a color sign in a more intense manner while using an intense facial expression.
Adding intensity to a color sign doesn't specifically mean "dark" but rather it means "very."
If you add intensity to the signing of a bright color such as "white" it can mean "bright white."
If you add intensity to a color sign like yellow or green it can mean "vibrant yellow" or "vibrant green."
