Orchids in a hillside

Orchids - Early Purple Orchid - on a hillside near Bygholm River, Denmark. This is a wonderful orchid that grows on unfertilized grassland. It blooms in late may-june.

Oil on canvasboard 24 x 30 cm (9'' x 12''). I found it really difficult to make the foreground vegetation - it's such a mess of grasses and leaves!
