365 #10: Watercolour by an oil painter

Every attempt I've ever made at watercolour painting has been a complete failure.  I'm an oil painter.  I prefer the layering oil lets me do.  I love the drag of the paint on my brush.
Watercolour has neither of these qualities. Especially the layering. I'm excellent at painting mud.  Although, today, I'm trying to fix that-or at least starting to.
Here's where I am now, as of 10:30 this morning.  Looking pretty terrble, but I'm going to let it dry and then add some more.  Maybe it will still be mud, but I'm hoping to capture and preserve the light that watercolours provide.
