Hi Woody -
thanks for sharing your work -
I pulled them up side by side several times... and I preferred the cropped one each time. I think the background is too detailed/busy for me.
Beautiful painting -

To crop or not to crop ?
I just finished a full sheet watercolor of a close up view of
cactus blossoms. My question is - would it look better if the
composition were cropped as shown in the second view ?
