Knowing what you like

A week or two back I posted a couple of my pastel land/seascapes, this one created in 1989 ...
... and this one a month or so ago  ...
I asked you and myself 'which is the better'? A client wished to buy the first but I said I'd paint a new version. The answers from all who responded were unanimous. Everyone liked the original (top) one. Various reasons were given. So I went back to the easel and have now amended version two above as below....
Spot the differences? Better than number two? Better than number one? Anyway I'm 'going to press' with this version and hope my client wants to buy it. No guarrantees. I once painted three versions of a River Ewe commission before she was aatisfied and who bought the latest. With a winning smile she remarked that she was known by local traders and her garage as 'the customer from hell'! Nothing like knowing what you like, is there.
