In the pink

Plumeria blossoms come in a variety of colors. Most of them are cream with pale yellow highlights. They also come in pinks with orange and red centers. They have a very strong and sweet fragrance, and are a favorite for making lei. I thought these would be good for my light value work. Today, I really missed not having white in my collection of pastels. There are some edges I wanted more pure white, but I had to make due with my palest cream. Maybe I will break down and get a stick of white for special occasions.
