So, this is my attempt at the challenge. My plan originally was to have the true color of the lily be the background, and the background, which is black, to be the lily (actually have the lily black and white). I mixed the green and red that I was going to use for the "true color" together, which made a black with a settle bit of color for the background. At the time I hadn't added white to it yet, but loved it. So I kept it for the background and then used some of the red and green seperately for some of the shadowing on the lily.
I struggled a bit with turning the imgae into a black and white piece, but in the end, I think it turned out okay.

Thaesha, this is beautiful. I almost took it for a black and white at first, then I saw the subtle hue shifts. Fantastic painting!
