Hi there Joan!... Both are lovely earthy and warm studies! I think that the larger format allows much more space to lay down passages which reflect the use of loose brushwork and planning!Call them what you ... or your ol' pal Vic want to Joan... both are beautiful paintings!Good Painting!Warmest regards,Bruce

I grew up on an a small island (Isle-of-Sheppey) were there was a lot of marshland, and your paintings took me back there, 55 years ago!They capture the essence of the marsh - beautiful.
