This is the first of two I'm posting for this painting. I challenged myself for speed and consistency. I painted one they way Bob does, and I painted one with a different sky. Other than making the sky obviously different in the two, I tried to keep the overall finished product as similar as possible. I did notice the mountains ended up shaped a tad different, and some of that might be because the weird perspective I had looking at the first painting from my second easel. Overall I had a blast on this challenge, and ended up with two completed paintings in 3 and 1/2 hours! Which is your favorite!?

I love this idea of 2 at one time. I have been comparing your 2 versions and you did manage to keep them so very similar! My vote is going to the pink sky. I feel like the mountains pop more against that sky than the golden one. It was a tough choice!

My vote is for the yellow sky. The yellower reflection on the grass works better with the yellow in the sky. But the tree along the side stands out more with the pink sky. Hmmm .. this is hard. I really like both.
