Aurora Wings - Shades of Blue

We are halfway through our challenge at Open-Minded Crafting Fun so here is a little more inspiration for you.

It's another gorgeous image by the fantastic Aurora Wings ( I just cannot stop colouring these beauties).

She is called 'Shades of Blue'.  So naturally I decided to colour her.............................. Orange, Yellow and Green - lol.

I have used mostly Promarkers on this image, except for the skin which is Copics and the hair is a mixture of both.

When I started this image I began with the Orchids and I used very subtle pale colours, but it looked very flat and insipid, so I went a bit mad and grabbed a bunch of different oranges, greens and yellows and now have no idea which ones I used!
