Having fun with watercolour

It has been a lovely day stretching paper and myself!    The following pictures are on  cold press watercolour paper, size - about A3


I painted this and was disappointed with my first effort.  Then I remembered seeing a piece that had been masked into stripes and decided to give it a go.  I painted a blue wash and added darker toned details to create contrast with the initial picture.  I am really pleased with the results!


Again, aiming to experiment, I played with suggestion and a contrasting colour scheme. 
 Oh, and had fun flicking paint around!

This is what I learned today:  

Don't be afraid to be wrong. 
No one engages with perfection 
but everyone understands mistakes.
