Friday Egg: Odd Combination



Today's egg is definitely an odd color combination. One of the interesting things about making Pysanky eggs is that you can never actually see what you are doing until you are all done.  So it is easy to get odd, unusual or just plain ugly color combinations.  The one that happens most for me is an egg that just doesn't work somehow.  The colors are too similar in value or not complementary and so the design doesn't come alive as it should.  I will let you look at the following egg and you can tell me if this egg was successful or not.  I simply cannot decide!

The colors come out quite well - at least on my monitor. I would say this was a success.
