Definitely get a pastel paper in a medium shade or color. It helps a lot! Rather than drawing the whole image in black on white, the lights will be laid in with light or natural color (like a light pink for the light parts of the lily) and you won't have a black line to get rid of, which flattens the thing.

And don't panic!! There are no pastel police or I'd be long gone!!!
