Produce two coloured paintings

Steps to produce the painting—same as always:

Examine the picture. Why does the painting attract you? Where do you want the viewer’s eye to rest? Is your composition creating any conflicts with the main subject? What can be removed to simplify the scene and composition without losing the essence of the composition? etc. Final critique.
