What’s old is new again

When i was in art college, I major in abstract painting but after I graduated my works slowly my painting moved to realism. Few years ago, I had this idea to combine the two styles of paintings together. I did a series of paintings with the main subject in the realistic style and the back ground in a painterly abstract style.

My series got very good respond, many commented how much they love the background. I sold a few of them however the two I  like the most had remind unsold.

last week, as I looked at them again thinking maybe there were something lacking in those two paintings so I  decided to add the humming bird to this one.

Here is the before and after update.( the painting is watercolor on paper, 20″x28″)

Color of the lilies humming bird with lilies
