if you've kept it, flaunt it!

#24 yellow

What colour is the sun, cheese, butter, blonde hair and bees?

Well, according to children’s paintings . . . Yellow!

The Pencil names below? Dark Cadmium, Zinc, Lemon Cadmium, Primrose, Naples, Straw & Gold.

My favourite Yellow? The colour on the transfer glass below – egg yellow.

Ready for some lovely, cheerful, crisp, unsophisticated Yellow?
