More Water Color

This little watercolor is drying as I type; I added some deeper blues to the sky and the water, but it needs some drama. Maybe more contrast in the clouds? I'll keep working, but am considering using a hot press support rather than cold, a la Burt Silverman. He does such beautiful watercolors using white gouache and a slippery hot press board.

The cold press surface is nice, allowing for some quick and easy definition of clouds, but I might have more luck with hot press.
