Iron Orchid on Beech root

Recently I modified this sculpture by painting the metal flat black. I also coated the Beech root with boiled linseed oil. I am quite pleased with the effect.I am finding that color can emphasize the shape better than how the raw steel appears, especially a dark flat color.The contrast with a light background or even the red background as shown works well IMO.
