The Great Mormon and Orchid Tree - finished

It was a long journey. But so pleasant! This is my second painting done for the Museums at Night 2016. I was asked to paint illustrations referring to Maria Sibylla Meriam's artworks. They will be exibited in May 2016. I hope I will have managed to paint five paintings by the time.

Scanned version.

Here are the photos from previous stages and the close-ups.

It was fascinating to learn more about the cycle of life of the Great Mormon. The caterpillar looks amazing.
Notice the way the chrysalis is hanging on the twig. It uses very very thin hair-like strand (I don't know how to name it).
