So I have been playing around with the Burridge color wheel and inspired by some old kids in clown outfit photos. I got to this stage and the painting was just not working for me. I kept coming back and futzing with the background but it just wouldn't work. I have found that that usually means either
a) paint over it and start again
b) do something drastic with paint and see what happens

I changed the red to yellow and everything worked a lot better!
