Are they the colors you most often wear? Decorate your home with? choose in other items?
"box of 64" crayola crayons as a child.
I did another sketch the other day, and noticed these were worn down, as were the new set DH got me for Christmas. I sharpened all and they were ready for business!
For some reason I just love the sharpened bits...
As the pencils wear down I couldn't see them in the portfolio so I placed a plain pencil along the bottom to raise them up.
Looks like I use fuchia, purple, greens, turquoise and blue the most. Of course the golden yellow is low as well... and they have all been used.
When I color in a sketch I tend to use them all though, every color to see how it looks...

Are you missing any?
Which colors do you use the most?
If you took out all the quilts you've ever made would they look like they were made by the same person?
I've seen 40 or more of mine up at once and it was astounding. I gave a lecture in a hall where they had room to hang them as I talked about them.
I suppose I use blues, greens, and fuchia most often in quiltmaking.
I am moving into red, and always try to add at least a teensy bit of orange to each one to make a quilt sparkle. It may be a sliver, a thread or a soft tone...
What color do you notice first on that sketch, probably yellow as I colored in a large space. But what next?
|See the eye? The star people holding hands?|
Lots of questions for you to answer today! I'd love to interview each one of you!
