dueling images paintings

this assignment went much more smoothley than my previous attempts with gouache. i think its because i went back to using it for more graphical paintings, rather than photorealistic lighting and such.
these two images are supposed to be based off opposing concepts, such as day and night, or happy vs sad and so on. i did some research into ancient irish ruins, and turned this out.
the first image is based off of "dream" bright, flowery and expansive.
the second image is a few hours later, when the sun has almost set, adn the spirits take over the ruins! NIGHTMARE!
