Colorful storm

I still find I'm jumping around a little with consistency of palette with my landscapes; but I'm enjoying myself and that's half the battle. This is painted from a small study I did about 2 years, the original was a lot more somber with a threatening sky of the approaching storm. I decided I wanted something more punchy in color, but possibly the increase in color has lightened the mood of the ominous sky? Still the painting works on other levels, even if I have lost some its threat.

This painting below was one I worked on last year, but only recently adjusted and refined a couple of details, so thought I'd post it up.
