Colour inspiration from contemporary Japanese artists

I like the earthy colours, they’re muddy and the brown looks like a deep red -- Japanese flag BUT they’re too similar. Want a higher contrast. More eye-catching.

The blue works well with the pink - stronger contrast. Dark like a crow. Not right - there are more appropriate colours for my images. Eg. Japanese inspired. Hand-made, rustic. Japanese Art

Taking inspiration from Japanese paintings and their colours (eg. cherry blossoms and foliage) - symbolic of Murakami’s heritage. The pink is soft. Light enough to work in different aspects of other pages. Green is dark enough to create a contrast but not too dense to make the images weighed down and unbalanced. Could be made even darker by layering over pink.
