sunflower commission

 I am working on a sunflower commission - 30x40" 
and I am trying to match a particular shade of red.
Harder than I thought.
I am so used to using cadmium red light, which definitely has orange undertones.
I'm trying to match the photo of the flowers in the upper left-hand corner.
I ended up mixing napthol red, permanent rose, and a touch of magenta.
I think I got it!

The painting in progress.
I want to finish by Thursday.
