Gerbera Daisy: Limited palette

This was painted over a bright red ground.  I painted with cad yellow pale and deep, titanium white and a red and blue violet (split compliment colors) Purple and yellow created the brown. and a had to cheat and add a touch of green to get a cleaner more lime stem. Fun exercise. I especially like the texture of the petals so I think I will add a little more before I call this one finished (or get disgusted, if this fails...nothing ventured...)
