  Few colors are defined by default (see documentation page 4). To use others, 
you must first define them (today, use the syntax of the standard `color'
package, not the one of PSTricks - for that, load the `pstcol' package in
place of `pstricks').

  The "usenames" loading option allow you to load the definition of a set of
useful color names (for the "dvips" driver, the file used is "dvipsnam.def").






  % Color "Pink" explicitely defined
  % Color "Aquamarine" defined in the file dvipsnam.def
