I focused today on fine-tuning the color of the orbs done on Day 3. To create shadow and deeper contrast, I used purple (black grape for cool colors, black cherry for warm colors). After the shading, I went over each orb with the original color, which amazingly tones down the purple, making the original color a darker version of itself. It may seem a bit drastic at first to add purple, especially on the lighter colors, however the end result is a richer color with a dimensional look to it.
