So red/green is my least favorite complementary color combination. Acknowledging my prejudice has challenged me to spend a few days studying red and green combinations that work. If I can photograph some images I like, maybe my appreciation will shift.
This image doesn't include red, but the green is a good start. This monochromatic study features a gorgeous range of green colors, supported by interesting lines - the contrast of the straight veins in the leaves, with the undulating edge of the individual leaves. I'd love to see it interpreted in cloth.
