the bottom one has more contrast, more hue, more interest

the ornament around the neck is particularly interesting. I might muddy up the green a bit, its a little bright, that is just a "taste thing" though.

Nice piece and I agree with dornberg.

The colors are rich and wonderful.
It has a great first impact.
but is the tear and lip expression significant or equal in importance to the entire painting as the tattoo on the cheek and the texture of the background green?
You are beginning to paint the surface very richly, but you are tring to present an image using ideas and rules, as opposed to what you see, so things look disconnected out of scale, and stiff.
What you see is much more important to what you paint than what you think and what you think you should do next.
Sign it an date it and start something new!
This will be a good one to review later.
