Spot the difference

Does make a difference, still impressive.

It now works better but both stand alone as being very good

I can spot 5 differences so far. Both excellent but I prefer the one were changes have been made.

Great save Lewis, when you look at them like this side by side, the original post seems to float/ hover, as if it was to short, rather then as you say in the gallery the arm in an unnatural position.

Yes better in the second but as has been said already great paintings. Time away from a painting often helps us see what isn’t quite right in it.

You should have added a few more for good measure, Lewis - buttons, whiskers etc.

Good save Lewis, and a good lesson learnt. The fault is only obvious next to the corrected one.

Both are excellent painting and beautifully drawn , I can see the difference you have made and do agree that it looks better .

and how many would have picked that up , I wonder

Recovered well Lewis. Good work again.

Thanks to all for your comments.

Wow! A very good point for us all to learn from, Lewis, thanks for that!

Ah, but on the other hand the post may have been leaning towards him!

Well done Lewis. You have saved the day! Lovely Jack Tarr!

Have to admit - didn't spot any great difference ! Had to resort to the other comments. Very good Lewis.

Hang on Studio Wall

Done a while back, my brain told me something was wrong, didn't spot it at first. In the left pic, he's some distance from the post. He couldn't possibly be resting his hand on it like he is. Impossible...except in an incorrect drawing. (From imagination). On the right I've tried to correct it by lengthening the post. A bit better. Not easy to correct in ink and w/colour. Moral...stand back more often. Still not quite right. Must pay attention. (Spoke about this in the forum).
