Why do clouds turn gray?

Clouds are made up of tiny water droplets or ice crystals, usually a mixture of both.

They can turn gray when there are so many water droplets in them that it stops the sunlight from getting through and reaching the ground.

Also, if there are lots of other clouds around, their shadow can add to the gray or multicolored gray appearance.
