Floral Painting - "Paper Lantern"

I just finished up this painting for a floral show, and as always, a white rose proves to be a surprising challenge.

I must have painted the shadow areas on the rose four times before I got it right. I had to keep pushing it darker and darker. It's a yin and yang thing. Without the dark, there can be no light.
