This is my favorite of the bunch! I'm thinking I need to do a larger painting (acrylic or oil, haven't decided yet).
Watercolor makes me nuts (or more nuts) sometimes. I inevitably put down too many washes trying to get darker. I end up taking up paint instead. You probably can't tell from the photos, but some areas in this painting are kind of messed up.
I'm not a "happy accident" sort of painter. I want it to do what I want it to, not what it wants too. So watercolor and I usually battle.
Which begs the question, why on earth was I looking for my watercolors and watercolor paper in the first place?
This next one, the colors, the almost cubist feel - I'm thinking Picasso in Hobbiton. . .
