A Painting

I finished the first painting. It is a watercolor exercise from the book, Water, Paper, Paint, by Heather Smith Jones. I didn't do the exercise exactly as directed. I painted the whole page with yellow ochre and mixed different colors into that original color  in the palette and continued mixing into whatever color came next. I painted blocks and then with white India ink painted rings with ovals inside. Then outlined the rings/ovals with a .1 Micron pen. Here it is:

Almost whole painting about 8 " x 8"
