Rainbows 2

At home, the little girl has her own box of rainbows.
(Secretly, I love them more than she does).
I always wanted a box of derwents when I was a little girl.
I still do.

I love the name of the colours stamped in white on each pencil.

Copper beech
Imperial purple
Orange chrome
Crimson lake
May green

I love the way they smell when they've been freshly shapened ...
and the way the shavings fall in curly woody waves.
When I use them I don't care if I go outside the lines.
