A Work of Art is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box.

## Puzzle

US Version

The drawing below is made up of curved lines that intersect to create sections. If you want to color in the entire canvas so that no section touches the side of a section with the same color, what's the fewest number of colors you can use? You can use a color as many times as you want as long as it doesn't touch any area with the same color.
