Alternate compositions


©Ginger Nielson 2009
To be able to change elements in a painting using digital techniques is both a blessing and a curse. This is an example of a piece I am working on for my portfolio. At some point I have to make the ultimate decision to continue with the painting of one of these four versions. If you click on the image you can see all four images.

Thanks for sharing all four. I agree, it is amazing how a few changes change a piece so much!

I have a personal bias for the bottom left. I love the atmosphere, depth and almost tension that you've created. There's so much more anticipation. I also like that the branch doesn't cover so much of the town. Well that's just my humble opinion. I'm sure you'll pick the one that you think is best.
