Trying some new approaches and color combinations after much reading, I found a composition I liked, but while it has promise, I'd call it a "failure."
A fellow artist laughed and said, "It not a failure, but an experiment." Okay, that's true.
The other factor has to do with atmosphere. Skies I get, but most of my books on watercolor are written by Brits or people on the East coast. They're very good, but they have so much moisture in the air that it affects the landscapes and colors chosen. Difficult experiments for a dry country artist.
Born of the need to get paint on paper, it has possibilities, perhaps smaller, and now, having learned more about colors, I'll experiment again.
