fade = insipid
I do not understand
by fade I would like so say "insipid"
Ah, I see dull colours.
no because dull red would have been ok
No Ernest, your English is wrong here, if something is faded the colour has deteriorated over time perhaps due to natural light damage, as does happen sometimes to photographs. Insipid or dull would have been fine, but you cannot say the colour is too fade. It is grammatically incorrect. This is because after certain auxiliary verbs, such as can or may, you must use the base form of the verb.
