When painting on shiny metal support,
a clear area is usually the area seen as dark.
Painting with dark opaque colors is sometimes done
in the anchor area of an image as on picturatranslucida.htm"
In a reflection zone white does not necessarily appear white
this must be accounted for as on page picturatranslucida.htm.

Notice how the area with white on the right side looks dark when there is a reflection of light in the area. That's very tricky to work with. You see the darks stay dark.
