Why de and not des in this sentence?
Whenever you have an adjective before a noun in French, "des" becomes "de."

Wooooh! Duolingo really really like red color things!
May I ask if red is the favorite color by the French people?
Not according to Shutterstock.
I see. They are not even close to red, but like the variations of the blue in French flag.
I always get confused by when you put the adjectives vs the noun in french. Here we have adj + noun + adj and I have no idea why.
transcription is tricky when the partitive de is followed by adj. You set up for a singular and the added "s" is not really pronounced to my bad ears
Just keep in mind that if it is singular, you will hear un/une + adjective + noun, not de. ;-)
