What do you guys think of the color scheme? Is it too boring?

I don't think it's boring at all. There is something captivating about it.

The colors are fabulous! I love the gradient quality to it! The work is beautiful as is...very mod, however you could superimpose a simple subject onto it and I think it would also be a viable work.

I really like the colors! I may steer away from the Minted green, though, because it seems like they're going for more non-Minted brand inspired art.

I like the greens. What about making the transition from each green less linear, more variegated? So that some of the x's start turning the different color earlier than some of the others?

I like the colors a lot! The fade is pretty, but it could also be interesting to see the colors distributed randomly in the design.
