Different effects of colours advancing or receding

Interesting how one colour can induce another and how colours placed together look so diffferent than when separate. Looking back at problems I have had with paintings, I can see instantly some of the colour proportion issues. Need to put these Qs on my board when painting:
Is the tone right? Is it too saturated? Is the texture a problem? Is the colour too warm?
Also looking at sections of Seurat's paintings eg: the skirt edges of " Le Chahut' (The Can-Can) 1889-90
