Doorway Garden

Doorway Garden, 11x14" oil on linen panel, plein air, ©Diane Mannion

Front Door Jungle

Painted outside the front door, north side in the shade.  Spent several days instead of hours on this one, fourth in my garden series.  Liked the yellow orchid against the darker background and the dark red orchid against the lighter side, played with values and patterns.    
Here's my setup and progression:
Umbrella used to block glare.
Finished painting, again!
