I'm learning so much while painting this picture. I don't have much experience with looser style of painting in watercolours. Lots of water, lots of paint, quick movements. So, difficult for someone who loves detail and taking my time.
Because the background was too light for me, I took the chance of layering looseness over the lighter looseness below it. It seems to have worked OK.
Also, tonally, the entire picture needed more mid and dark tones. I think we're getting there on that front.
After this dries, I still need to go around and fine-tune some of the edges by softening them with water. Almost done!!!!
