Watercolor Study

After four days of flu, when I did only the things I had to do, the wish to draw returned (which I proved yesterday). And today I post one more sketch, my study from the book "Watercolor Tips and Techniques".
First, I highly recommend painting as the activity which can clean the brain and soul. Because my recovery started in the moment when the alarm clock sketch was ready and completed when I finish this piece.
It turned out too dark, overworked and messy. Mr. Barry Herniman, the author of the lesson in the book would be sorry to see it. And I fell in love with his technique, freedom, color feast and pleasure I received when painting.
His site.
His blog, which looks forgotten and I am sorry about that.

Today's photo are actually three photos. I did them in Georgia, in December 2009. When driving along the small villages on the way to ancient monastery I saw that the fences, gates, benches were coloured same color in each village. So I present here blue village, green village and beige village (at least it is easy for tourists asking for the trip directions):
