Starting To Paint The Orchids

It's already November 14th and I don't know where the time went. I have started painting the orchid painting. More will be done on it next week. The pinks are Opera Rose mixed with Quin Rose. The shadows are the pinks grayed down with green from my pallet. The yellows are Gamboge, Winsor lemon, Cad Yellow Med., and Indian yellow mixed together in various mixtures. I also used a light wash of Yellow ochre in some of the petals. There is also some white Prismacolor pencil in some areas. The size is 15x21. It will be matted in a 22x28 mat when it is finished. The paper is really white and I am not sure why it looks gray.
