Gray Roses 1 Less Color (Mostly desaturated)

Gray Roses 1 Less Color

The only constructive criticism I got for my Gray Roses was that there was too much color in the artwork, so here is the same work with the saturation to about -60 or so.

Gray Roses 1 Less Color

My goal in creating the first gray roses artwork was to explore the concept of a gray rose,  so I wanted to have colorful leaves as if the gray flower color were normal, but I imagine that some people might find the colorful leaves to be too bold or distracting.

Which do you prefer? (see previous post for colorful gray roses)
