Duelling Paintings Part 1

Final assignment for this year, everything else is handed in already, all tests are complete etc., so this is all I have to work on now.
Final painting assignment for this semester is two paintings, one the opposite of the other, in whichever way you care to interpret the meaning of 'opposite'. For mine the 1st painting is a tranquil ocean scene (well the waves are rather choppy but it's still cheerful). In the 2nd I will replace the water, with lava, and that happy dormant volcano will become a raging fireball-like lava dome surrounded by the shattered remnants of the mountain's sides.
Like the previous painting (get that back soon hopefully) I'm making the rouhgs in photoshop, from which I'll paint the finals. Making the rough for the 2nd at the moment, I hope to finish that and get some progress on the finals before tomorrow.
EDIT: Finished the rough (a very detailed rough, too much fun!) for the 2nd painting as well. The 1st might be a wrecked civilization amongst crashing waves, but compared to the 2nd painting, ANYTHING else would look like paradise. Observe:
