Chestnut

I took out the chestnut crayon, ready to test its impact on the white paper.  I was surprised at the orangey tone of brown.  From the crayon's sharper end than most of my crayons, I deduced that it's not one I use often when coloring a page.  Coloring with crayons or colored pencils is one of the ways that I relax.  Then I went on the hunt for items in my home to enter my chestnut photo to  project64colors.blogspot.com  I heard about using a color each week from the crayon box of 64 colors, my favorite crayon box.  I got excited at the idea of one more way to explore my environs through the lens of my camera.  I seesawed between the brown bear on a book cover and my Toronto Blue Jays bear.  Here you will see the bear who won my heart.

What a cute bear! His fur matches the chestnut color well. I too love to color as a form of relaxation. Thanks for linking up this week.

:) Coloring is something that also relaxes me. I recently got into painting. Something that is very difficult for me compared to drawing. I keep trying to paint- but I can never complete a work (as I am unsatisfied with it) so keep painting over it and over it until it is even worse than before. I need classes! For now, I will stick with crayons and pencils :)

Can certainly see why the bear won! Such a cute chestnut. It is quite a challenge isn't it to find a specific colour....But cetainly encourages you to move outside your comfort zone!
