I'm really new to painting and when I start a piece, I usually have an end game in mind. Yesterday I just started painting with different colors and ended up with the product below. I would really to add something to it, but fear I'm going to ruin the background. Any suggestions?

looks really good. maybe do some test paintings on a scrap/ study paper first with the objct/ things you plan on adding.

other than that the only way i can think of is to use a fixative on background and then you can whipe wet acrylic directly off
if you water acrylics a bit first and work with many very thin layers to shape your objects.
