    I liked the first attempt better simply because I feel the “patchy color” actually works together for a more textured piece.
    Also I cringed seeing you try to erase the color off the pallet. Is that professional or student grade watercolors? If so you can always rewet and reuse what you mixed.
    Thank you for the video! All of them always make me happy to watch because you tend to be so happy.

    I hate myself. I had the opportunity to either get a watercolour book that comes with three colours (the primary colours) and 2 watercolour pencils (I've NEVER used watercolour pencils EVER!!) for R58 or get a book and watercolour paints (with more variety) for R47!! I got the cheaper one and now I hate myself because I REALLYYYY want the book!!

    Have you tried making “palette gray”? If you take a very wet brush and swirl all the leftover watercolor paint together, you will end up with a unique gray color that makes a great background color to put on a blank sketchbook page, over which you can do ink drawing, colored pencil, gouache etc.

    I'm new to your channel so you may have heard this before. It might help if you loosen your grip. Your holding the brush like a marker, which is understandable but it may help a little. I'm not a pro, so I could be wrong.

    I really hope you do more of these, Waffles! This was fascinating! Btw, if the colours are 'crazy' mix them with their complementary colour in the colour wheel to get a neutralized colour! So mix a little red with your green to neutralize it. :)

    I agree. The lighter wash background with the first looks more like the reference photo and is a bit cuter. I actually like your style a bit more than the actual artist’s. Both are good but yours is kind of cuter. The first window kind of looks like what it might look in summer and the next in winter/ late fall. I really like how you did on both of them. Cute !!!

    Hi. Watercolours can be tricky, but you did great. There are lots of advice here in the comments, so I hope I haven't repeated any but here goes. Using a hairdryer speeds up drying times (was a life saver for me, & it's so much fun blasting your work). One the first wall, you could lighten it with going over with clear/clean water again and lift it off with a tissue or paper towel. Once finished, you can weight down the book and the pages will stop being wavy after a few hours, depending on the weight.

    Very neat book! And with how you say you struggle with colors I could see this being very helpful for you as far as learning (or anyone learning watercolor!).
    I think the second one has much more pleasant colors but you can tell you didn't have the attention to detail you did in the first one lol

    I think it’d be cool to do only one of each through the book and then go back and do them all again with the second image and see how your art has improved.

    Use more water on the "wash" and use less water in your paint for a heavier pigment, like where the leaves are.

    When I saw colors’ names written in Russian at first I didn’t realize all the situation, because I’m from Russia
    But then I was like WHOA StOp that’s Waffles’ channel!1!11!
    So, I was surprised
    (In the beginning you said that this box came from Ukraine, but nevertheless:Р))
