Thing-A-Day 2009, Day Two

For today's pattern, i really wanted to experiment with a color pallet that i wouldnt normally use, and since pink and purple rarely make it into the final drafts, I thought that was a good place to start. I hand drew the concentric circle design, and then colorized it using a warm, autumnal scheme. I think it is feminine but refined. A teacher of mine in art school, Scott Rankin, once told me that the best colors are those that take three words to describe. Pinky-Blueish-Brown. Muted-Yellow-Golden.
