Gregorio Ferzio wanted to know how to show graphics with a background that
varies over a range of colors.  The code below will work, but you need to
tweak the plot range in DensityPlot to suit your specific example.  I
explain most of the tricks I use here in notebooks (Tricks.nb) and
(GraphicsTricks.nb) which you can down load from my web site (URL below).

  BackGrnd=DensityPlot[ x, {x, 0, 2Pi }, {y , -5.2, 5.2}, 
    ColorFunction->(Hue[#/6, 1, 1]&), Mesh->False, PlotPoints->70
  Curve=Plot[5 Sin[x], {x, 0, 2Pi } ];
Show[ {Graphics[BackGrnd], Curve} ];
