post and rope color study

Okay, I’m tired of drawing green things, I want to draw orange things.  The foreground structure in the painting is composed of post/sticks/logs tied together with rope. The color of the wood comes easily, but not the rope. I would rather the rope read a pale yellow, but there is too much yellow in the background and surrounding leaves, so the rope would disappear…more of a lavender/blue/white is needed for the ropes.
