started or finished ?

I have posted some photos of recent work here partly in the hope of some feedback. As far as I am concerned these paintings are in the very early stages, the lay in , the sketch, getting the feel of a new composition. My partner thinks otherwise and has told me not to do any more to them.She likes the immediacy and fresh feel. I really don't know what to think although perhaps a style could develop instead of the usual realistic conclusion that I usually strive for.

 This is a more accurate photo in terms of tone.
