Leaving the paper clear where the lights are to be, wash over the rest with a delicate warm tone. Make this wash with lampblack, yellow ochre, and a very little vermilion. When it is dry, wash in the shadows with lampblack, rose madder, and a very little yellow ochre. Where deeper touches of colour occur, add a little burnt sienna and sepia. In deepening the reddish tints, madder lake or rose madder will be useful.

For the warm green of calyx and stems a mixture of Antwerp blue with cadmium, vermilion, a little raw umber, and a little lampblack may be used; in the shadows deepened with rose madder, with the addition of a little more blue and lampblack. If the under side of the flower should become particularly illumined by some chance ray of light, take advantage of it, and, with a finely pointed brush, increase the high light, adding more cadmium to the local tone.
