White Orchid Progress #2

I finished the White Orchid last night. So far this piece is coming along nicely. I didn't have to rip anymore! Now on to the bargello background. I hope to get that started tonight. I have not yet settled on the background colors. I have two families of Silk & Ivory that I have to choose from. One is pinker than the other.

I think it is interesting that every time I do a scan of this piece, the colors are different. Next time I'll have to go to the camera as it will become too large for the scanner. I wonder if it will be yet another color! The canvas is actually Eggshell, not blue or pink. The sort of center of the flower is a medium purple shade, not pink.
