a blown white tulip

I used only cobalt blue and mars yellow on this little study. Oh and a little bit of chromium oxide green. 
I just had to paint these blossoms when I noticed the western sun slanting in through my studio window and lighting up the inside of the petals. The tulips are past their prime, the petals are starting to fall off the stem and the whole arrangement looks translucent.
