Wow, that's really hard to do with watercolour! I mean, color over color, stain over stain, and obtain this effect... U must be working with watercolour for a time now...

Thanks for the enthusiasm! Yes, I have been doing it for awhile, but only in recent years I have had enough time to focus on my art. Make sure you have really good paint and really good paper. I know people try to save money thinking 'I'll use this till I get better', but it's almost impossible to get better with bad materials. The next most important thing is to be bold and experiment a lot, Also, watercolor paints do a lot of exciting, maybe unexpected, things on the paper. Dont treat it as an error, make use of it, incorporate it in the final result. Watercolor is a wonderful medium if you give it a descent chance, like a duet between you and the painting:)
