Cherries on String II



mixed media 24x26cms






















I decided to have another go at my 'cherry necklace'.  This is in watercolour and coloured pencil, the first one I did was in watercolour only and was painted from life.
I used my original painting and a photograph I took of my set up at the time.  So which do you like best?  You can see the original here

Hard to say both are lovely

hmm difficult choice. I like the looseness of first and details of this one.

Hi Cathy. Good to see you've been holding the blogging fort so well in my absence!
I think I prefer this new one as it seems somehow richer in colour but I'd happily see them both in a frame on my wall!

Cathy Holtom said...

Thank you, I prefer the 2nd one too.
Nice to see you back Gillian!

Hi Cathy

The cherry colour is stronger in the mixed media version but I think my favourite is the first one simply because I like the 'bleed' better

as Gillian has said though, I'd happily hang both on my wall

They are both beautiful, if I had to choose, I might say the second, as I love the addition of the blues in the shade

Gosh, I couldn't decide, kept going back and forth. It's a draw!

This is beautifully done, but I like the first one best, it's more vibrant and alive.

I like them both! We have ONE cherry on our tree this year, after the cold spring ruined the blossom!

I agree, I enjoyed them both.
