Reading in bed II

What was I thinking?! Last night I kept mulling over how if I painted this one colour, and that another colour, I'd make great improvements over yesterday's piece. So I did another. There are things I like more in this one - I think the face is a bit cleaner, there's a bit more of a likeness, I like the warmer colours and the addition of the book. But I think yesterday's composition was stronger and the pillow and blanket painted better. Still struggling with how to paint in one stroke what is now taking me thirty. Sigh. Thoughts? Opinions? Advice?

I agree Kim, I think I like the composition in the first one, with more focus on the face and more contrast overall. However, I do like the warmer colours in the second. :)
