I was playing with the Idealized Design technique from 'Zoltan Szabo's 70 Favorite Watercolor Techniques'. His version is much more simplified and abstract. This was my first try and I didn't get it quite right, so I kept adding things to try and make it look better.
I like it. For a first try, anyway. I like the technique too, though I don't think I'd aim to be quite as abstract as Zoltan's painting. You never know, though. Tastes change.
