Painting Loose

Roses - 5x7 - Watercolor - February 2016
After I did this, I wished I had painted it bigger.   I was trying some under washes and layering on detail at end.    I got to impatient.    Rule #1 - watercolor cannot be rushed.    In several classes I've had instructors use a hairdryer to dry the painting between layers.    Recently I watched a You Tube video and heard someone swear that the colors were different if you don't let them dry themselves.   Paint - wait - paint - wait - paint - wait - paint.    Tomorrow I'll redo this painting and be more disciplined.
