Cardinals in the Snow

I had sketched a cardinal to paint.
This is the painting on my Lexmark scanner - no changes made.
It's hard to see the snow on the tree limbs in this version. This is one from another scanner that we have- it's a Lexmark 5600.
I also made a small change - I think I clicked on the sharpen button. I have it all written down - somewhere on this desk...

Another version.

I can't decide which one I like the best...what about you?

Hi Carol,
I like the second and third ones, as you said the snow shows up better. This is a great one!! We had snow, too-- It was so beautiful.

Very cool paintings. Isn't it interesting how a scanner can change the same image.

I like the more intense colours of the second and third ones! They're lovely!

I like the middle, the colors are richer. That little bit of red is perkier, but not too, too.
