I love both versions, although the little red bird in the top painting is especially darling.

You make me want to pull out my watercolor pencils and start experimenting!

Oh, these are great! The second one is so light filled, and they're both so sweet. I do love the birds--we've been noticing some cannoodling definitely going on in our backyard, and lots of grasses being collected from our hanging baskets, so nesting is taking place. Spring is here! These are wonderful, Laura.

I have a bird feeder just like that right outside my living room window... and like that one, it's usually well visited by cardinals and a variety of other birds.

Great job.... I especially like the second one.

Congratulations for both works. Personally I prefer the watercolor!

Well done!

Both are wonderful, but I prefer the watercolor version personally. It seems a little more organic to me. Love your colors as always.

Beautiful paintings! Really love that second one, something about that yellow light, is just dazzling and sets up the focus.

Nice paintings! I like both but I think the watercolor pencil one is my favorite. I like the use of colors in it.

I agree that the colors in the second one just pop and the application seems to be a bit more relaxed and free! Great job on both.

Laura, you have two great entries here. I really like the way you added color to both of them. I think that add a certain spark that wasn't in the reference. And I love the way you handled the seed in the feeder in the second version. Well done!
