Trying to Gild the Lily ... or ... Another Class Project

I left this painting for a few days, as I couldn't decide what to do with the background.  Considering the ornate style and rich color of the bloom, I thought it best to do as little as possible. So I sketched light pencil lines to get an idea of placement, and applied paint w/w.  As with the rest of the painting, the only colors used were aureolin, quin. sienna and phthalo green.
