First Time's the Charm

watercolor cow
Yesterday I sat down to do some watercoloring, after seeing an inspiring painting somewhere.

Its easy for me to mess them up by treating them like other paints, or like pens and outlining with them.  This time, after spending some time practicing drawing cows, I used enough restraint to paint one I'm happy with.

Getting greedy, I attempted a seal and a horse, and they turned out like kindergardener scrawlings.  Of course at that point I was on my second glass of wine.
