Original Creation

Absolutely free hand. No pencil.

Nice sketch with watercolors.
Since I am at 0 level with watercolors this is something I produced out of blue to just paint from nature.

Watercolors set for kids. 12 colors.
Paper is A5 format.

Oh this is really difficult and under this preconditions you did a fantastic job. Normally if I do regular watercolors (without ink) I draw rough shapes (not very detailed) with the pencil, this gives me more security with the perspective etc.
A hint from my side: To me the most important thing in watercolor is the paper. I prefer a very absorbent one. Best for me is cotton paper which doesn't dry too fast.

Thank you guys for your endless support!
@Tom: I will consider this. So far this is second best paper I have tried. Anyway if I try more water color I will switch to something better for paper. Perspective wise it is a first time I saw some strange behavior of the perspective from the point I am. I was lost a bit but anyway tried to think how to transfer to the paper. It looked like one point mixed with 2 point in real life. Something absolutely weird.
I think it will be a challenge to find cotton paper in Russia, but I will try.

I have tried several papers, I like Arches and W&N professional best yet. In my last shared painting I used rough grain. It is also very nice.

I will take a look when next time in hobby shop. I need to restock on oils anyway soon.
