I've tried Googling this but don't think I've constructed the query correctly.

I'm swapping out a photo in a gallery wall because it's colours clasht with the predominant mix of colours in other photos. What I would like to do is query my catalog and find pictures with, for example, predominantly a green hue and/or a mix of green and yellow. I didn't see anything in LrC that would do this and wonder if there is a plug-in that would do it. I presume that any plug-in like that would have to prescan all photos in order to assign a colour rating for each photo.

Thanks for any pointers

LR by itself cannot do this. I have used keywords to do this, having set up an upper level keyword category called Dominant Color, and under that the colors.
I am currently playing with a plug in called Wordroom https://wordroom.org/ that seems to often return a color in a specific list of suggested keywords.
You might give that a try. It does have limitations in the number you can do a month, and it requires an internet connection.
