honey and yellow saturation

I am trying to understand how the proportions of color in abstraction work or don't work. How much yellow is too much? And, when the blue and violet are also in play, how do the colors fit? Pulled through, the blue/violets turn neutral and yet they still vibrate in those shades of warm yellow.

Reminds me of my cup of tea today. Earl Grey, with just  "A Taste of Honey."

Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass reminds me of my father. Dad played cornet in high school and college, and when I was growing up, it was this kind of music that played on the family hi-fi!

Many compliments! Your abstract oils are very fine.

You have managed it beautifully. Restful spaces and some busy and hectic phases have made this work.
