Watercolor Wednesday - Fogged

I tried to capture atmosphere in watercolor, using gradations, a limited palette, monochromatic/complementary colors.  Fog and mist are interesting and pretty to paint.

"Nothing that is can pause or stay;
The moon will wax, the moon will wane,
The mist and cloud will turn to rain,
The rain to mist and cloud again,
Tomorrow be today."
-  Henry Wadsworth Longfellow  

(a tip of the brush serendipitous discovery and inspiration of Anne Packard's "Fog" while trying to find misty/foggy quotes/poems)
