The Magic of Color

"I never met a color I didn't like."    Dale Chihuly

A while back I downloaded a number of stock images online. I've tangled some of them, but others have been sitting around for a really long time. Here's one I decided to pull out and tackle today.

I love the bright colors in it and thought it would look nice if I used colored Microns to tangle this. I don't often use the colored pens, but there was one to match each of the colors (except yellow) in this design and I figured it was a great idea. A gray Copic multiliner was used to tangle those circles clinging to the outside of the big circle.

I really liked the way this was going until I got to the last part (isn't that the way it always goes?) which was the blue penned part in the top green circles. Definitely not my favorite part of this piece.

The shading was done with my pastel pencils, which I have in all the colors to match the pen colors. If I could cut out the top part of this I would be really happy with it!
