Using Darker Colors

I'm taking a watercolor course currently and the teacher dared me to darken my colors. I am taking the challenge slowly, but a couple of times I really liked what happened. The first painting, Crater Lake, has some rocks on the left side that really came to life for me. It's scary to see the colors so dark and such a mess, but as they dry the magic starts to work.

Not too happy with this. Will have to do it over. It is the final scene, when the stars make it back into the sky and comfort the moon. Forgot to make the moon smiling and it is missing something else.
