Working with Olives in a still life

I am still playing around with the dots and olive theme. I keep rolling these little olives around in my mind but still haven't pushed the idea I am working with to where I want it to be yet. I have several others paintings of olives that I have started and I will keep working on the idea. I like the feel that I am getting with them but I am still working out a color grouping that I am happy with. I have been arranging tones and establishing relationships.What I pair the colors with completely changes the views experience. Green next to yellow has a totally different feel then green next to blue or brown. The key to remember is there are no bad colors combinations, only bad proportions.
