Thompson's Mill (Watercolor & Oil)

Last week our Vistas & Vineyard destination was Thompson's Mill which is close to Shedd, Oregon. I wanted to make both a realistic watercolor painting as well as a "wonky" oil painting. I completed the drawing for the watercolor on site and then started the oil painting. At home I finished the watercolor and finalized the oil painting. The oil painting was done almost entirely with a color shaper tool which looks like a small spatula. The watercolor was to show that I could also create "straight" paintings. The Queen Ann Victorian house belonged to the mill owner and is nicely restored despite my painting.
Which painting do you prefer?

I like both but the less wonked one makes me want to bake.
