Same model, different palette?

Two WR Watkins watercolors are up for auction on eBay this week, here and here. The style and palette are different — the body seems more solid in one, more sketchy and blocked out in the other — but we think the model (check the hair), pose (crossed legs) and props (draped ottoman) indicates the same sitting. Which makes sense since they are both dated to the 1930s.
