Here is a close up, although if you click on the picture you can even get closer.  Thought this might be even closer by taking a close up picture.  Note the dry brush technique I added to give it more sunlight and texture.
Working on the large flowers.  Colors are cobalt blue, quinacridone rose (or permanent rose) and titanium white.  Added thalo blue (or winsor blue - green shade) to certain areas.  Watch for deeper values near the flower centers to make them pop.  They are so close in color to the's a little tricky to highlight them.  I don't finish one area of the painting at a time, so there are more value changes I need to make to the buds on the left, etc.
