After searching for a long while for some inspiration to use in practicing my calligraphy the other day, I began making a long list of some of my very favorite words. Words that either sound beautiful when you say them or they mean something beautiful. As I was making the list, I noticed that I’d listed a few that were colours (why yes, I do like the British spelling better), and decided to use those for the first round of practice. Lovely, aren’t they?
