MY COMMENTS:
This piece seems very dark to me, but I felt I needed to apply several layers to get good coverage.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
I'm looking for advice on getting the depth and richness of color I want without making things look so dreary!

this does not look dark or dreary to me

since you are going with the "glow"
I would punch it up a bit further
use that dark blue (where fitting)
to accent the brights
I would even consider using some
purples and/ or pinks
to heat things up a bit

I think you are almost there

I like the way it glows

I like very much your drawing - agree with giniaad for the dark blue, especially in the shadows of the leaves.

Thanks so much, everyone, for your great feedback! I'll definitely visit the colored pencil forum and also work up those shadows a bit.
