Wikipedia Meaning and Definition on 'Grayish'

Grey (also spelled gray in the United States, see spelling differences) describes the colors ranging from black to white. These, including white and black, are known as achromatic colours or neutral colours.

Complementary colours are defined to mix to grey, either additively or subtractively, and many color models place complements opposite each other in a colour wheel. To produce grey in RGB displays, the R, G, and B primary light sources are combined in proportions equal to that of the white point. In four-colour printing, greys are produced either by the black channel, or by an approximately equal combination of CMY primaries. Images which consist wholly of neutral colours are called monochrome, black-and-white or greyscale.

The first recorded use of grey as a colour name in the English language was in AD 700.
