Challenge accepted ~ Re-creating an Oil Painting with Watercolors!

I had a lot of fun attempting to re-create my original Oil painting from last week with watercolors!

24"x24" Oil on Gallery wrapped Canvas
"On The Rocks"

Watercolor - 11x14"
"On The Rocks II"

The biggest difference and challenge for me re-creating with watercolors/gouache would be the details in the rocks.

The original Oil painting rocks were created using a palette knife and I was able to get a lot of
depth with the using black, but with watercolors it was duller an needed more details, so I added the
yellow ochre, and Titanium white (gouache) and worked in some dry brushing.
