Playing with shadow colors again.

Trumpet Parts No. 91, Color Scheme Game

My concentration was on the temperature of the colors, the value of the colors and the contrast of shapes.  Overhead lighting cast a strong shadow beneath the trumpet horn.  I opted to eliminate the minimal shadows cast by the dice and other trumpet parts, feeling they would create busy patterns out of nice, simple shapes.  My color scheme directive was Analogous with One Complement, Red  / Violet as Dominant color.  I opted to include the two cooler hues to the left of Red / Violet rather than work toward the warmer Red / Orange.
