Painting monochromatically

I let the time get away from me and I did not sign up for the workshop at Hipbone Studio (that would have been today). Instead I worked for quite a while on my "Nine Takes" painting. I can't show it to you because it is a secret (our paintings will be unveiled this weekend at O'Connor's). I am satisfied with what I've done so far. I even have a back-up painting if the one I worked on today winds up to be scrapped. I gave my palette a lot of thought. How should I harmonize the colors? Should I use split-complimentary? (I can't tell's a secret!)

When I was done for the day, before I cleaned off my palette, I did this mostly monochromatic painting/sketch. Acrylic on 8 x 10 canvas panel.
