Did a little more work on this one and at least I actually like it now.  I particularly like the opalescence of the layers of paint in both the upper blue parts and the lower right lighter section.  It has a lot of nice detail and depth and I don't feel like the upper and lower halves are separate paintings now.  I will have to watch it a little longer and see.  I do like it better in person than on my monitor as it has sort of an aged quality that doesn't show here.
   I will post the progress of a  watercolor landscape I am working on tomorrow.
