This year's bracket sheet was started with pencil which was then overlaid with black ink. (I use a Pigma Micron 02.) Carefully laid out on watercolor paper, the brackets sheet has a background of green glimmer mist spray. The green honors MSU, since I am a MSU fan and the Spartans are a green and white team.

Each team that wins is highlighted in gray. Actually, I am using Payne's Gray, a paint color name that watercolor aficionados will recognize. I chose this color in honor of Adreian Payne, Michigan State's senior player who is an integral part of the MSU team. (But my favorite player is Travis Trice, for whom I could not find a color name.)
Michigan State is highlighted in Viridian green. That green streak should continue to the center of the brackets sheet and be the dominant color for the Final Four.
