Phlox in Crystal

White is always a challenge.
A good look at the white reveals
more about the surrounding colors
than the white itself.

Similarly with glass and crystal, one paints all
the colors reflected in the glass and then the
highlights or sparkles.

Looking through the glass reveals a distorted
view of stems and a leaves.
