Goldfinches Finished???

I think that I may be finished with these two miniatures. What do you think?
I worked on deepening the color of the flowers and defined the seed heads more. Then I worked on the greenery again. On the left image, I used ultramarine blue to darken the leaves and on the right image I used a combination of ultramarine blue and indian yellow to make a green similar to sap green. I liked the right image better. I am sure that there must be more to do to these, but I honestly worry that I might get heavy handed and overwork the little paintings. My favorite part of them is the way the goldfinches are very translucent and have good form.
Time to move on.
