Love the flowers in the first and the beautiful colour and negative painting .. the X of the colours in the b/g does jump out a it but overall, this is a beauty.
Your second is so different with it's looseness and again, lovely negative painting on the right ..... is the left unfinished?
The clematis colours are lovely - I'd just watch that the b/g doesn't get too fussy and detract from the beauty of the flowers.
