Here's a small watercolor sketch that actually led to bigger paintings.
My first try wasn't quite what I'd imagined. That's typical with my watercolors - I need to keep redoing them to work out the colors.
It was my first time doing such a large watercolor; I used a full sheet - 22" x 30".
I was happier with this version because there was a bigger range of tones - both lights and darks.
