X-mas in Bokrijk with a wash

I knew that you would! I know that you know that this one is the better of the two. Now it is finished and I'll bet that you're pleased you added that wash! Well done, lovely work! :)

Very nice work, Mia. I prefer this one with the wash. But they are both good, just different.

What a lovely study - this has got to be the winner - love the play between delicacy and firm line - great.

I like the wash it adds something very nice Mia:)Linda

Definitley this one Mia...it's stunning!

I agree with all the above, I prefer this one Mia

Thanks Louise, Lionel, Michael, Linda, Fiona and Petra. Yes, I think as a card, this would be the better one. I appreciate your comments very much! Michael, I am looking forward to your coming posting of the "Old Town Hall"!!!

I think I prefer this one but both great studies!

I like this one better Mia, the wash gives a softer look and more depth.

Thank you very much, Debs and Carole. Much appreciated!

This is absolutely superb, Mia! The washes are lovely and lend added depth. And the composition is inspired!

Thanks Seok for your lovely comment.

I printed the first "X-mas in Bokrijk" on A4 watercolour paper and added on that one a wash of burnt sienna. I don't know which one I prefer, do you? All comments and preferences are very, very welcome!
