Cross Currents

Oil on paper 12" x 16" This looks better from far away. I had hoped for a stronger sense of power and motion, but I can't seem to get there. At this point, I would just be wasting more paint trying to improve it, and since it does look good from far away, I've signed it and called it done.

watercolor on paper 8" x 10" I'm starting to get the hang of water color, as I keep practicing. I love the contrast of dark and light clouds against the background mountains. The reflection of the clouds in the sand didn't come out as well as they might have, but overall, I am pleased with this.
