The colour wheel - kindly refer to your primary school notes - was a childhood revelation to me, particularly the mixing of colours which in turn could lead to other colours. Blimin' genius. The rule book also states that primary colours: red, yellow and blue can't be mixed from other colours, don't ask me how or why, just accept it as a wondrous truth.
Teatimes and weekends would be spent putting these theories to the test with my assortment of felt tips (the yellow tip ALWAYS suffering from a green or black tipped tinge), heavily sniffed Crayola crayons; coloured pencils and obligatory floor of shavings; dried up little squares of paint; a jam jar of murky water and an oversized art shirt worn backwards, as is my way.
