This may help

Here are the colour studies separated. Perhaps that will help?????

Colour studies?????????????????????????????????????????

When I first started this painting I was fairly sure that the three figures would be dressed in white. Having completed the tonal underpainting, I am now unsure. The scale and tonality of the piece at this stage suggests that a bold colour composition would work better. 

I have knocked up a few colour studies using blue and red. I feel that this combination was more in line with the classical vibe of the painting. I am REALLLLY confused now. I'm pretty sure the blue/red/blue doesn't work but I am struggling to choose an alternative.

COMMENTS ARE MOST WELCOME. I genuinely need a hand here. Consensus rules.

Well I never

I was doing a bit of research today when I came across this charming painting from the late 1520s by Lorenzo Lotto titled Venus and Cupid

That's a bit rough Cupid!
