Two Blue Jays – Which do You Prefer?

It’s been a while since a post – again! Let’s face it, time spent at the computer is time NOT spent painting or drawing or writing. Well, a lot of writing is at the computer, but you get what I mean. Time spent creating is not the same as time spent telling about creating.

On to today’s good stuff! Here are two watercolors of a blue jay. Same format, same colors – Cerulean Blue, Manganese Blue and Mars Black –worked at the same time. One is much better to my eye, what do you think? Do you like #1 or #2, this one or that one?

I’m curious which one is more appealing to you. The winner will become a greeting card in my Etsy shop so please comment!

i like the first one better. the shapes and proportions seem to flow better, but just slightly. they are both very good.

Thanks for commenting and letting me know. I've had some offline votes as well. Number one is winning, but number two has some fans as well :)

I think it's official - the first blue jay is the one! He'll be turned into a greeting card - eventually :)

I'll be sure to post an update. Thanks to everyone for taking the time to let me know your favorite.
