Your Opinion Please :)

First of all let me show you the painting I did yesterday. It started out as a doodle, then I decided to colour it in with shades of green.

But this isn't what I need an opinion on, it's my new header that I can't decide what to do with.
The first one below is how it looked originally..... .....then I added more to it.
Which one do you prefer? I'd be really grateful for your opinion, it's so difficult for me to be objective abut them. Thankyou! :)

Without the added bits. Better design, less fussy.

(Sorry, that sounded a bit blunt! Wasn't meant to - it's a lovely header, and I prefer it without the extras).

Good morning Jessie (it's morning in France when I am reading your message and answering you call to opinion).
I do like the firt painting very much but (it took me some time to make a decision) I prefer the second one. The seven flowers you added give some more peaceful and relaxing mood to the painting, and balancing too. It's MY point of view. Let's your other admirers (yes, yes, I think what you do is wonderful)give their opinions.
Have a good day.

Thanks so much Gretel :) It didn't sound blunt!

Hi Marie, it's morning here too, I think I'm just an hour behind you! Thanks so much for taking the time to consider for me, you can see my difficulty?! ;)

I like the first one. It's more mysterious and a sleek design. i think it's a self portrait.

I like the first one. I find the second busy.

Jessie said...

Thanks Rosie and Perp, Choc...this is getting interesting! :)

I like them both as well, but kind of like the busier piece with the flowers.
I also love the girl holding the bunny! Too cute!

After a while I prefer the first one, however... I like the flowers and wonder if they might work in the upper section, perhaps fewer of them? In the lower section I think they detract from the figure, whose expression is lovely.

Thanks very much Darla :)

I like the second one too. I think the flowers make it!

Jessie said...

Thanks Wyanne, first it seemd as though everyone liked the forst one the best, now it's even stevens...I know it's my decision ultimately but I still don't know.....!

Jessie said...

Thanks Lizzie, I think you've hit the button! The flowers are a bit too all consuming for the figure...thanks for your help :)

After much to-ing and fro-ing and deliberating, I perfer the first one Jessie! xxx

Jessie said...

Thanks Liz, I think I'm beginning to make a decision now...

First, I thought I liked the second one..It seems like you do alot of beautiful pattern in your work, and I want to see more! But then, yes- I have to agree that the first one does look better, since the figure looks so serene and needed the empty space. Looks like you picked that one as well :-)

Jessie said...

Thanks so much Jannie. I think you've summed it up nicely :)

I think I like the bottom one better. The one with the flowers and hair. It seems more filled out.
