I did a watercolours course this year at the Koorenhuis in the Hague. We mostly painted dead natures and flowers. These were some of the works I did during that course. I really like the transparency effect you get when painting with this technique. I guess one of the difficulties in watercolour painting is in learning how to anticipate the behavior of water, rather than attempting to control or dominate it. Once it has dry off it's almost impossible to correct something that didn't work out very well. On the other hand you can get some pleasant surprises sometimes!
