playing with watercolors

 these first two I did watching an instructional video.  The first one is kind of smeary, and I like the composition but it's pretty muddled. Remember: brown happens.  

 Another "simply painting" instructional video painting. I'm a bit more pleased with this, but I really wanted to see how I'd do on my own.
This one is from a photo I took at Lake Tahoe.  I'm pretty pleased with it.  I have a long way to go, and it's not exactly in the watercolor "tradition" I think, but I think it's the best watercolor I've done.
