For the foreground in this piece I'm considering an impure orange- red to balance the background. It seems arbitrary, but there is always a method to the madness. It's just a basic complementary color scheme that really is ingrained in all artists that understand the theory of color harmony. Is it a good thing ? I guess I can't unlearn what I know to be true to make an image work. It's not easy to become naive once you learn something. An untrained or inexperienced artist would probably put an other color scheme together and somehow make it work. But more often than not, not really know why it didn't work or why it did.
