White Isn't White

My backyard is full of Shasta Daisies.  Every summer giant collections enter my house and hope to be painted.  Every summer I try to accommodate their request.  One thing I've discovered is that when painting white flowers I need to use more grays and neutrals. I'm getting better at it and am fairly satisfied with this attempt, but will keep working those elusive white petals.  The paint is dry and this one has joined some of my other flower paintings for sale at my Etsy Shop.
