    This is kind of hard XD you’ve got a lot of very strong, dark colours there. I’d probably offset that with a paler colour, light purple maybe? Or, as there’s a tiny bit of green in there a minty green might work. It’s hard without seeing it in person XD (what colour you do the writing in needs to be taken into account as well…) 

    What type of paint are you working with? If it’s acrylic it probably wouldn’t be too devastating to paint over the first layer if you really don’t like the result πŸ™‚

     

    This is a really awesome painting though! 

     

    ETA I would advise against any pink as it’d clash with the red and pink you’ve used for shadows πŸ™‚

    I’d do purple, green or blue, in a shade pulled from the painting. I personally wouldn’t do any shade of pink as it may end up either clashing or competing with the figure.

    I think it would look great with a turquoise border to offset some of those darks.

    I like light pink, like the color you used for the highlights – that would brighten it up a bit but still keep it girly.
