New painting commission

I've got a commission for an explosion painting. The customer wants a bright yellow base with a rich plum and a dark blue exploded onto it. I am mixing the plum using Alizarin Crimson and French Ultramarine and I am using Prussian Blue for the dark blue. The base will be spectrum yellow. I am producing it on a traditional fabric canvas on wooden stretcher and using oil paints.
