Eastern Versus Western...

This month in my watercolor painting class, Colleen is focusing on Eastern style of Oriental Strokes.  Last night, I decided to do the same picture in the Eastern Style versus the Western Style of painting.  I thought it might be interesting exercise to do.  I will admit that I didn’t follow all the Eastern style rules, and I did take more time in sketching out the Western style painting.  But when comparing these, I think is very interesting.  Here they are...
Eastern Style--
"Italian Garden Wall"; Oriental strokes on 11" x 14" Sketch Paper.

Western Style--
"Italian Garden Wall"; Watercolor on 9" x 12" Cold Pressed Paper. 
Thanks for stopping by and I would love to hear your input on this East versus West.
