Dabbling in Watercolor

Watercolor has always been my favorite painting medium. It has an elegant simplicity to it, and I like the "stained" textural quality it gives. I haven't worked with it much, however, so I'm still learning how best to use it. Here's a couple experiments of mine in watercolor:

I've found that it's easy to over-do watercolors, so it's best not to add more then two layers of color on an area. The color also starts out darker and gets lighter as the brush goes along, so starting your brush in areas that might be shaded can be helpful too.
