Olive Green and Violet One

8x11 watercolor with pastel and charcoal on paper. This is a color combination that I find very interesting. Violet and green are complimentary colors on the color wheel, or actually what you would call split complimentary. I brought in a bit of red violet, grey, taupe, mauve, yellow and light blue for more interest and then added the red, black and white line which I often do, for a punch! Tell me what you think of these colors together.
