Wanted to use a mix of primary (red) and secondary (green) that was from a natural environment. This is a close up of the hibiscus flower.

You have most certainly shown that you can simplify a photograph using color as your primary element!
This is outstanding and the colors really work well here.
My only note on this assignment would be to ensure that when you use shallow depth of field you want the area of interest to genereally be in focus. In this case the dof is so shallow that not all of the most interesting bits of the middle of the flower are in focus. That’s fine and it’s entirely subjective but I generally recommend having the most interesting part in focus. It’s a simple idea but not that easy and takes practice.
Nice job here.
