ok, basically what i use most are two basic coloring schemes in color theory:
1. complementary colors. these are colors that are opposite of each other in the color wheel. the contrast usually boils down into hot and cold, and is a great way to add accents to your pic.
2. analogous colors. they’re colors that are next to each other on the wheel.
what i do is basically use colors that are next to each other in the wheel and then add their complementary to accentuate. i don’t always do this, but it’s a great and simple way to get that nice ‘blended’ feel to your pic. the complementary will help accentuate the parts you want to pop out more.
here i used a set of blue-to green analogous colors and add the complementary magenta to accentuate.
