I don't usually like to use metallic or glittery paints, but thought that it would be nice for this illustration in particular.

Though it's hard to tell from the digitized images, the original painting does have another more eye-catching feel to it.
For my July "tokyo trend" report "am all ears" about earrings--large glittering gemstone ear clips that cover much of the ear, and earrings with very large and visible pearl backs are what many are sporting these days, especially as a contrasting element to causal, sportive outfits.
Now, I have to add the text and submit it to the editors!
