The original painting is available.
This painting is from a series of paintings that I completed awhile ago of various locations at Sonnenberg Gardens. The Belvedere Pavilion is where wedding ceremonies and photo shoots take place. The view is of from underneath the pavilion, looking out into the gardens.

I started this painting with a solid layer magenta, some of which is visible in the final painting. In this series I experimented with painting without drawing first, although that means that I worked out the drawing with the paintbrush instead of a pencil.
