Nex painting idea "King Protea" floral painting

Hi Everyone, A fast sketch and idea this morning for my next painting. I am going to take a break from buildings and do a nice floral. This one is all about the majestic  national flower of beautiful South Africa. The King Protea.

I had troubles to decide on the background colour. I initially wanted the colours of the African savannah plains would be nice, in gold, oranges and yellow orchres (like my my orchid painting  idid some time ago)  so I went with that idea.  

Here in photos shop with more orange for me to see

But now I think it might be too much with the pot..unless I change the pot colours. I did some tweaking in Face book and here is the same painting with blue tones, aqua, powder blue and a purplish blue tone.  Hmmm..Either Acqua or powered blue

Your paintings are so fresh and inspiring, I think I could be looking at them for hours. I wonder how you find those marvelous colors for your paintings. Was it your inborn talent or is it a skill you've learnt?
