what water colour and paper are you using?

are you going from light to dark or dark to light?

by the looks of it your not letting 1 colour dry before you put another colour on top..

they do looked rushed...with wc i find you need to be patient

I'm using memory watercolour tubes and 180gsm watercolour paper.
What do you recommend I use?

I'm not really going in a certain order. What works best?
Yeah they were all a bit rushed, think I'll take your advice and wait for colours to dry properly before adding the next one.

Thanks mate, will try going dark to light next time.
I'm gonna order some 300gsm paper but the dr Martin's seem a bit pricey, think I'll stick to cheapy paints for now to practice techniques and stuff.
