I couldn't decide which style to paint this sketch in so I ended up doing both!

The bottom one is my fave, but both are all the rave! :)

That's so sweet! I also think that the bottom color version is better. You've been very diligent :)

Kate said...

Adorable! Love them all!

Kelly said...

i actually prefer the top one. The colours are just stunning and the balloon, hat, scarf and tie all stand out more which i think makes a nicer composition.

fantastic!

love the addition of the blues, in 2, but 1 is so soft...lends such a nice tone and mood to the story. :))

Debra Cooper said...

I like them both but feel the second one is stronger but I think the solid color balloon better.

I love them both. They are wonderful. The bottom one is more define. I love the softness in the first one!

Vanessa Newton said...

Paige these are just delicious! I love the little pigs, the color and every yummy detail! They are both excellent, but the bottom one gets it hands down! I just adore your style!

I like both of them, but I love the subplot of the bird saying bummer.

Adorable work. I like the second one, only because of the humor and I don't feel so bad for her...interesting to explore the difference in reaction. Thanks.

Lynne Chapman said...

Bottom one for me too. It's great to see the sketch as well.

Poor piggy...
