Gull Sketch358
Acrylic on cartridge paper. Trying to figure out a new painting, think this would have worked better in portrait rather than landscape and probably should have more space something at bottom so that gulls have somewhere to go, like a rock or boat , any opinions?

Bullfinches reworked

Bullfinches. Coloured Pencil. Reworked.
bullfinch-1 (2)
Bullfinches. Coloured Pencil. Original version.

I painted this originally in 2007 and posted it on here in Jan 2011, (bottom image) but I was never really happy with it , my patience ran out building up the colour and I had an exhibition coming up so I framed it and exhibited . It didn’t sell and I wasn’t really surprised and it’s been hanging in my studio ever since. Every time I looked at it I thought “must take that down and rework it”, so finally I have. What do you think, old or new? I know what I think!
