Well, I learned one thing from this. If the background water is not as dark as the photo, it doesn't matter. Stop looking at the photo and let the painting tell you where to go. That thinking might have stopped me overworking the water so badly it looks like sewage!
Also, I could have omitted that tart green leaf at the top and I think it would have made the whites of the flower pop even more. And I could have made that lower green leaf nice and warm like the little center one.
So...I may try this one again another day, with changes...or not.
