There Is A Difference

I was asked to paint a copy of an existing painting. The reason for this is a strange topic in itself that can be discussed at a later date. The best way to manage this commission was to paint similar without trying to imitate. The general idea, topograhy and light color range of the original painting were followed; beyond that, there was no point in even trying to come close to a copy.
Although both paintings below have strong similarities, they are quite different. I hope that one day, they will come together and be hung beside each other in the same space.
The top painting is the latest.
