Best background colors for my website?

Hi people!  Please look at my website - my friend is worried that her art looks washed out on this site.  Specifically, the Oils page - she's concerned that her paintings look less vibrant than reality.  I'm afraid to "amp" the work as it looks right to me.  It may be that her monitor is not showing properly - but I'm also wondering if a color change could make her see them differently.  Suggestions?

Hi Caitlin,

Without having seen the works in person I don't know that I can offer the best perspective but I will say I can't see using any color other than white or a pale grey. I do think it might be worth testing out widening your content area and removing the blue to go for an all white background that you could break up with color blocks for text. It's a fresh and modern look that you can see on sites like this one.

They achieved that look using Custom Panel Widgets. You can read more here.
