Silence amongst the Cacophony

My first attempt with watercolors.  I found I enjoy the ease of application yet found the bleeding factor a bit unexpected at first, before I realized brush type makes a big difference.  The Flowers on, and including, the rocky white mossed basin and the trail of blood was done using oil, the grassy shoreside/hillside was done using watercolor as was the base of the pool, which I then proceeded to fill.  The droplets in the pool were airbrushed in and for the Ocean I used a paint tube.  There is a brief poem in the ocean as well.  I may go back and add some other elements, perhaps a boulder or some rocks later on, but for now I like the barren feeling that would accompany such a scene.
