Peonies-Painting Whites

White flowers present their own special problems.  I mixed the lights with varying amounts of cadmium red, cad. yellow, cerulean blue, and permanent rose.  I carefully observed the subtle changes of color and temperature to show the light on and through the delicate petals.  I made the shadows a little lighter than they actually were to keep the look delicate.  The shadows are ultra mine blue and cadmium red.  I introduced the same colors into the background to add more interest there.
I changed the original background to make it more interesting.
