Crash Site Oil Painting

(Whoops, posted on fb and forgot to put here!)  This is an oil painting about 16" x 24" which I started at IMC a few weeks ago.  I ended up tweaking colors a bit digitally, and made some changes in the foreground, but it's still pretty much traditional.  The challenge was trying to keep it loose to make it more dynamic.  However, I'm afraid all the elements, foreground and back, have the same "consistency" which probably flattens the piece too much...

It was a lot of fun though, hopefully I can bang out another one before next semester starts.
