I have a great affinity for descriptions that involve color. So much so that I have to stop myself from overdoing it in my own writing. I’m only allowed to use the word cerulean once in any book, for example. Verdigris is another word/color that rings for me as are: vermilion, topaz, malachite, ochre, umber, sienna.

  1. *Erudite* color words like the ones you listed remind me of of onomatopoeia…in other words, they evoke rich images (rather than sounds). I find I have to be careful not to do the same thing when I write as well…fun
