I did this as a kid. Erin did it copiously. Noah did it too. And this is the array Sophie and Fiona worked on together the other day, and then photographed. Taking one's vast pencil crayon collection and sorting it into different parts of the spectrum and then creating the "best" order for the different shades in each part of the spectrum, agonizing over where to include the silver, the white, the black, the shades of taupe and terra cotta, experimenting with the different start- and end-points that allow one to best integrate the odd-ball colours .... it is something all children do, isn't it? Tell me it's not just something weird that runs in my family.
