As you begin to look at colors, do yourself a favor and stay away from the pile of browns. You will find that in learning to mix colors you end up with plenty of them anyway.
Other options in the field of color are Water-based crayons. Pastel pencils. Pastels. Oil pastels. Watercolors. Acrylic or gouache. Pen and colored inks.
Each of these media has its own characteristics, advantages, and challenges; practice will allow you to develop a feel for them. And, if you're interested in learning about any of them in more detail, we've suggested some books you might like in Appendix B, " Resources for Learning to Draw."
