Inky Butterfly Mandala

Choosing the good colour combination for this illustration was a challenge! I really wanted all the elements in this composition to stand out because the drawing is so beautiful. I would still change a few colours, but I’m happy with the final result. I’ve used Prismacolors and FC Polychromos, Coliro metallic watercolours and a golden Pan Pastel for the background.
