Coloured pencils, in a row

I love colour.

I particularly love big boxes of coloured pencils with the pencils ranged neatly flowing through the shades.

I’ve always wanted a box. But I’m not great at art so it always seemed a little indulgence too far.

But one Christmas someone bought me some.

Here they are.

In reality and reinterpreted in pencil.

Perhaps I should learn to draw.

The person was my Mum. Thank you Mum :)

Very eggy

I was practising taking photos today and I combined these different eggs with some pink tissue paper to see if it brought out the blue in the Cotswold Legbar eggs. It kind of did but not as well as I hoped. I like the colours though and the different eggs look pretty together.

The brown ones are Burford Browns and the paler smaller ones are bantam eggs. 

I got them from some friends but you can buy eggs like these from Clarence Court although not as a mixed half dozen.

I’m looking forward to doing a comparative tasting.
