100 Watercolors #62 - Magic

When I color comics, I am very careful to not use any white in the panels, so that the white of the speech balloons provide the greatest contrast (ideally next to a character with some area of spot black).  Since there are no speech balloons in my illustrations, I have been trying to use more white, as an area of high contrast to pull the viewer's focus.

If I could have added a little speech balloon to this one, I would have had the fly saying "Ta da!!

Next week's theme: Do Not Disturb!
