Orchids study - background changed

I changed the background from a monochrome purple to brown and green. The scan is bad, but that's the contrast that is on the real painting.. So I feel that it needs a darker shade of brown and a stronger wash too.. Here, I left a bit of purple there to see if a variegated background color would look better or a solid one! It doesn't seem to work - not with the purple anyway!

It all looks pretty except for the one purple spot on the left. Get rid of that and you'll have a really pretty painting. Nice job on the orchids!
