The colors and relative size of the subject in Color Veins drew me to it. I loved how the yellow just surges its way into the falls and then the colors change as the veins continue to spread across the surface. The piece has a powerful, almost electrically charged feel to it as if bolts of lightning were shooting up and out of the iris center. And the naturally highlighted area of transition where the yellow changes to white and then blue really adds to the spark-like impression. The high level of detail allows texture and contours to be seen.
