I had a new color to try today — burnt orange — so I used a primarily neutral palette with some blue and gold to highlight it. The orange really is gorgeous, but I got a little carried away trying to get a composition I liked. As a result, it ended up with more gold than orange….which is okay because the whole thing was more muted than I hoped, and the gold pops a lot more than you can see in the photo. Curious to see what it looks like varnished.
