Having just posted a video of one of my paintings to youtube, I was delighted to receive the lovely comment....."as if by magic". That is how I feel when painting with watercolour. With the confidence to allow it time to move and mix on the paper, it can work magic on its own. Resisting the urge to fiddle is one of the most important things about watercolour and sometimes, but moving around the paper and painting as if you are plate-spinning, you can avoid staying in one place for too long and remove the urge to play "too much" in one area!
