What can I learn from messing this work up? 1. I should have done pencil sketches first too set this up. I opted not to this because I believed I had the perfect setup in mind. Sometimes whats in the mind doesn't always translate to paper. 2. I should have used less watercolor. The complete saturation of pigments on this work muddies the whole composition. I should have kept the whites white.
Oh well, Its all a learning process and at least its something to post so there you go.

Since my jeep is out of commission, I spent the last couple of days working on setting up my studio / fly tying bench / office. It really is little more than a closet in the garage but it does have a enough room for my painting and fly tying.
