Landscape Watercolour of Padstow, 15" x 11" on Saunders Waterford Rough Paper 140 lbs

Every now and again I produce some work which is embarrassing, but I post it here as a reminder of the so many things that can go wrong with a watercolour.  Mistakes here are 1) In my opinion bad composition 2) Sky too dark meaning I had to go even darker with the back and middle ground 3) Colours too bright 4) Reflections in the water not matching the sky.  I could go on.  Anyway onto the next.  

I heard someone say recently, "you're always 5 paintings away from a masterpiece". Yes, quite true.
