One Color Dominant

This was what I painted last week for my "Simple Isn't Easy" class with Mark Daniel Nelson. The assignment was to pick a color and paint a painting in that color. So I was pretty excited about this. I've been wanting to experiment with this technique for a long time. Especially with some of my jumping figures. So I ended up painting two versions! It was fun to see the same painting twice in different colors. The first is "red-violet", and the second "colbalt-teal". 

I prefer the first one but mainly I think because I like the value pattern more. Mark did a poll in class and it was almost 50/50 on which painting people preferred. Which one do you like better? Is it just because you lean more toward warm vs cool colors? I paint a lot of cool temp paintings, so I know that wasn't why I preferred the warmer version.
