splendid stuff sir... wish I could use colour a third as well as yourself.
Good of you to say, although I'm about to reveal my secret...(in hushed tones) opposite sides of the colour wheel. In all honesty I've still got plenty to learn, but the best thing my tutor ever taught me is when using watercolours to use a restrained pallette and go from there.
I get the complementary colour stuff... it's the shades, placement, light and shadow (and having a decent drawing would help) that needs to be addressed. I will endeavour and post.
well, it's a start... http://drawjerky.blogspot.com/2011/04/typewriter.html
