Where i grew up…

I took the last oportunity to paint the house in wich I grew up. It was a really nice sunny day in the garden in Lucerne.
Now the house is sold and my parents moved out.
I couldn't decide which version is the better. So I show both of them. (the second one was a really quick one, just to "clean" the color palette.
