So I put together this set up where all the contents are heart shaped. I placed this in an east facing window and found my view with strong sunlight shooting thru the glass.
I have never painted crystal before. The more I have worked out ahead the more confident I feel when I pick up my brush.

I knew painting the crystal would be challenging but I did not realize how difficult rendering the light refracted through the crystal would be! Needs more play but so far so good. Also it's all sitting on tissue wrapping paper. I love the way the tissue looks in that upper left corner but the rest needs work.
Well, here I go into unknown territory with that crystal dish!
I hope to have a finish to show in a few days.
