There is something so wonderful about coloured pencils, I can never have enough of them. I love them most standing upright in a clear glass jar, their colourful tips pointing towards the sky.
I was given my very first set of coloured Derwents as a very young child. My Dad put them in a cupboard to keep for special occasions, and I would ask him if I could use them to colour in. I still have those pencils now. Red was consistently my favourite colour.
