Going Bigger

Occasional Breeze 2.0
16 x 20

You may recognize this scene from a few days ago--this is a larger version I painted yesterday. It's interesting to me how, when painting the same subject, the results can vary so much.  It shows you just how human we are.   While I really like the first one--the initial impression, I feel too much like I overthought this one.  I'd really appreciate any comparison feedback on this one and the other!

In both of these paintings, you know immediately you're in Texas!. You really captured the light reflecting off the blades and the dark shadows in this one.

I often get that feeling, that the smaller one is fresher, more spontaneous... I try to remember that it really IS a different painting. It kind of takes it's own course. Both are great.
