Tulip – colored pencil drawing

I had a chance to try a version of the tulip in colored pencil. It’s a beautiful purple/pink color with white at the top of the petals. I had some difficulty rendering the white — I added shadows in various shades of gray, but am not sure it turned out very well.

If anyone has any suggestions/comments on how you handle this sort of problem – especially when rendering on a white background – that would be appreciated!
