Transformation of Purple nine

Two years ago I made "Purple nine". It was part of the fields series. Since then it participated in a couple of exhibits, and spent some time on the walls of the galleries that carried my work. It was almost sold few times.  

 And when I brought it home a month ago, I couldn't resist give it a makeover. I thought that original was too dark, although it had gorgeous display of purple shades that I really liked. But in the end, I opted for a lighter background and that led to tweaking the flowers a bit, and finally the grass too. The texture of the background is much heavier now too, since I applied the acrylic paint quite thick, and it looks great.
