One small step in a watercoloured direction

I was very happy with the result of this watercolour study, I am starting to get a feel for the medium. It is still a series of mistakes that I somehow patch up but most importantly, I am making fewer mistakes with each painting I do. I painted this yesterday evening at the “The Swedish Academy of Realistic Art” in Bergshamra, Stockholm during a two hour session. I’m still playing with the Charles Reid approach to watercolour painting which is the free use of hot and cold colours.
