Helena asks, "When you were a child, which crayon color was your favorite?" and I reply:
"My favorite color as a young child was red and then it switched to green as I got older and loved nature and trees. But I also loved the NAMEs the colors, like "ochre," "burnt umber" and "burnt sienna." What great names. I always had to use burnt umber, burnt sienna and ochre so I drew lots of trees with complex bark, even as a fairly young child!
I also like the names of khaki and ecru!
How about you?
This might call for an art piece or a poem! (If I ever have time to play again!)
I discovered an interesting list of lost crayola colors, including the names of ones that I remember from my childhood!!!
