When I took Home Economics in school, I was given 3 pieces of cut cherry tomatoes, a leaf of lettuce and a blob of cottage cheese to arrange into an attractive presentation. Other students completed the task in minutes and so did I but then...I decided the tomatoes would look better like this...no, like this...NO, how about this? By the time the teacher arrived to grade me, I had pink cottage cheese. When working with red, walk away!
If you look closely at my still life set-up, you'll see the red knob on the glass box. Now, I'm walking away to attend my Critique Group meeting.
