Erases everything currently on the LCD screen with the indicated color. Can be used in
loop() to clear the screen.
While background() expects 8-bit values for each of the red, green, and blue channels, the screen does not display with this fidelity. The red and blue values are scaled to 5-bit color (32 discrete steps), and the green is 6-bit color (64 discrete steps).
