Learning Mistakes through Watercolour

I notice i’m struggling to get the colours right with watercolour. I seem to lose bit of the mojo of my painting. I feel like I’m trying to hard to get the painting fully painted with colours. what I need to do is to practice more in painting small scale and to apply less colour on my subject.

Plus i also notice i have to be careful painting with gravity. the water can pull down if hold upright. i started to paint on an easel but water can run down and leave lines dripping marks. That made me notice it not a good idea to paint on the Easel most of the time especially on the first stage of painting where i apply lots of wash onto the paper,

Its good to make mistakes in painting, you really learn and try to get it right at the first time. Take you TIME painting, let the paint dry completely before moving on.

I like to record my process on my blog so it will remain in my memory.
