Choosing a Color Scheme
Of course you can use warm colors, as I did above with reds, yellows, and oranges. Black, gray, and white are neutrals.
But one of my faves is to pick a color that I want to be predominant in an artwork. Then select its complement to use as an accent. For example, if I plan to use a lot of blue-greens, then I would add a bit of red-orange to really make it pop.
Yellow is the opposite of purple, but again, using them equally in a single art piece is not recommended.
