This 9 x 12 watercolor was an interesting exercise in light, shadow and shapes. Still problems working fast enough wet in wet but with practice, I think it is getting better.

Thanks for the tip

I will wet both sides the next time and see how that goes. Paper should definitely stay wet longer.

You are definitely getting better. One way to keep your paints from drying too quickly is to wet both sides of your paper before you begin. When the paper is loaded with water, it will adhere to a non-absorbent surface. You can then wipe the excess moisture from the surface of the paper and begin to work. Even though the surface will begin to feel dry, the moisture is still trapped within, and your washes will be easier to control without hard edges. Paint can be lifted more easily and also blended more easily.
