Thanks for hosting Melissa, I just had to do this one when I saw it.
I did the first one yesterday in about 90 minutes when I had to knock off to mow the lawn. It is acrylic on canvas board measures 20 x 16 inches

I decided I hated it so painted over it this morning. This one took 2 hours and I like it much better.
Thanks for looking all c and c welcome

The second is much better! It seems more focused. Doing it the first time must've been a great exercise for the next.

Yes, I like the second one better. I like the hands and the expression that says so much about the effort involved in playing a trumpet. Jen

Both are great.

Both are good. I like the colors in the 2nd painting more.

Great drawing and good choice of colours, particularly the second one. Personally, I would push the contrasts one notch and I think it will rock.

The second is indeed a lot better! Good work:)

Love it! I do like the composition of the 2nd one best, too. I like the greens in the first background a lot, though.

WOW....love your ability to paint such wonderful HANDS!!! Amazing...
I def like the second one better as in the first he had way too skinny of forearm going on...but I did like that bg in the first.
Great skin tones and over all yet another SUCCESSFUL painting!!!

I think they are both nice but I agree the 2nd one is better. Very good.

Love the second one :)

Oh! I like both versions, for different reasons; the first for the gestural quality and those blues, and the second because it sizzles!

They are both good but I think the second one would get my blue ribbon. I really love it. Hope you did not have any damage from the storm you had over there.

The colors you used just do it for me, perfectly done and so full of vim and vigor!

great cover up, love the second one, but I thought the first one was pretty good too...

02-07-2011, 08:13 AM
Beautiful... yes the second is stunning!!!

You should be well satisfied with this second version Christine. Great graphic image. The use of the strong red is just what the image needed. Intriguing to see the development too.

I like both of them, but the second one is my favorite. I think the blues through it (in more ways than one) just make it pop. Great job!

Great job Christine love the second good idea

02-08-2011, 10:25 AM
Hey Christine:wave: actually i thought you did the first one on purpose,no drawing straight in with the brush and paint for a couple of hours to give yourself an underpainting that you could fine later,which you did,excellent painting:clap:

I love teh second one with the warm glow in the BG

02-08-2011, 08:21 PM
Mowing the lawn - lucky you it's more like shoveling snow here - anyway love the second much better the players' cheeks and jowls are more in keeping with playing this instrument and the background is much more effective Christine!
