Reds, Oranges, and Browns

My palette looks like I have gone crazy with oranges, reds, and yellows. Mixtures of Cadmium Orange, Cadmium Yellow Deep. Quinacridone Coral, Cadmium Red, Burnt Sienna, and Raw Umber are "dancing" around my palette. Close up, some of the colors look neon bright on the painting. When I step back from the piece, it all seems to come together with soft warm browns.

Maybe daring myself to push into uncharted color territory is the way to add extra life to my work and still keep it looking natural.
