Penstemon: Delicate Abundance

I've been drawn to the penstemon in our garden for several years and have drawn and painted it several times, but unsuccessfully. Now I'm planning to give it another go.

It has delicate white flowers, that contrast with gracious curving leaves  atop tall deep purple-reddish stems.

It grows in a kind of profuse abundance and reminds me of stars on a dark clear night.
