I love, love, LOVE this!

The subtle colour choices are wonderful for me, personally, but maybe in this instance (I mostly indulge in the same ranges myself), a blob of saturated colour would really push it? If her corset were a deep lustrous red?

I've only very recently been trying to push my colour choices beyond what is actually visible, but I don't have enough knowledge or guts to explore further for a while.
