Chincoteague storms/ painting in mist (and fog)

It poured most of yesterday here in Chincoteague. Lucky for me I have a sheltered balcony. This is the one I worked on for most of the day. It still needs a little more.
Till then I give you-

Tips for painting mist and fog:
*value changes need to be subtle
*that considered, over blending your transitions makes them uninteresting
*select a color palette (limited) and stick with it
*even the foreground color is softer in mist
*the sky sets the tone

This is spectacular!... in a calm and peaceful way. Yesterday's was, as well. Love the low horizons.
