I like this painting a lot, the concept, the colours and lighting are great. It's good to see a painting with an overall idea.

For me, the mystery of this painting is the lady looking "into the greenhouse". I'm wondering what is inside, will she go in etc, so for me that is the focal point. I'm not quite sure what the gent is doing, maybe closing the door, but he takes my focus away from the main point, the greenhouse. There's a strong idea in the painting and the figures only need to reinforce it.

Just my amateur 2 cents worth.

well yes - 2 focus points , the woman and her dress , and her date who forgot his keys ...so yes, I guess she wanders in .. all up to interpretation ......lol
