In the Shadows Sold
Another recent painting!
I hope to keep them coming!
I have painted this painting before
many years ago, it is a great example
of how I have changed painting styles. The question is
better or worse?

New or old? Just too hard to tell from little jpgs. But looking at the little photos I think I like the older one better - it has an "other century" look to it that I like a lot. But again, without looking at the originals, it's really too hard to tell.

The old painting was one of my favorites that you've ever done. The photograph of it isn't the best but I remember it having such a warm feeling. So much honey amber to it and soft greens. It was rather moody.

That being said, I like this new one too but it's completely different. The composition, the mood of it and the style. I do like the new style more and I think I like the composition of it too, although I miss the people in it as that's one of the things I liked about the older one. I like the mood in the older one better though, more drama more darks (but comfortable darks) and while this new one has a bright cheeriness to it, I think I just prefer the older mood.

Maybe you could make a third one with the new composition, new style and old mood?

I like the sky in the old one but overall I like the new one better. I like the building better and the shadows on the roof. By the way, bright cheeriness (which I don't agree is what the new one is all about) is not a bad thing.
