Darwin's Greenhouse

You may recall my painting of Darwin's Houses, painted (mostly) on site in Downe, Kent. Well, this is one end of the greenhouse that appeared in that painting.

Isn't it charming? You can see why I wanted to paint it, I hope. The garden paths were a little narrow and it wouldn't have been civil to have set up an easel here - so this is from a pair of photographs.

I took two in-progress shots. The first is an acrylic underpainting (done with a 1" brush), the second is where I got to yesterday:

Oil on box canvas, 12 x 12"
