Two Blue Jays – Which do You Prefer?

April 27, 2010 | By | 7 Replies More

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.

    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.
