attempting watercolours

I first attempted watercolours in art class in highschool (so a very very very long time ago), and I sucked. Everything looked yucky and brownish and a watery mess.
So today is my first attempt after all those years. I really like the look you can get from watercolours, and trying to use them with mixed media to get the effect that you are going for.

So here are my attempts.

Hearts for testing colours and blending. The geese I saw these two in Port credit yesterday enjoying a drink together, my watercolour attempt and charcoal pencil over top to bring out the feathers.
