I finished this painting recently. It had been a few weeks since I participated in the Watercolor Course and I wanted to see what I could do without the time limit imposed by being in class. It took a couple of weeks to do from start to finish – mostly because I could only work on it a bit at a time. Unless the effect you’re going for is a big smeary mess you need to wait for the paints to dry between layers. So I’d get ten or twenty minutes of painting in each day until I finally decided I should stop. I’m a big noodler when I’m doing art so I generally have to decide that I’ve done enough at some point and walk away. I’ve learned that I can mess up a piece with too much noodling.
