Block Island and the Berkshires

From the beach at sunset on the Island...sand dunes in shadow and wild beach roses surrounding Rosalie's wonderful old house and The Gothic the Berkshire Hills where the cultivated flower reins supreme at the Botanical Gardens in Stockbridge Massachusetts around an old Cottage... How I love to paint outdoors and breath in these beautiful scenes...20x24" oil on canvas for both of them

Before and After

When I finished the first watercolor I was very pleased with the simplicity of the flowers up against the pure white background...however as I spent more time with it I felt like there was something missing....or was it just difficult to leave it alone? I like the more dramatic feeling  of the white spaces around the flowers and the background becoming more interactive with the flowers...what do you think? @16x20 watercolor gouache on Bristol
