I started this painting, pure transparent watercolor, last winter, entered it in three shows. No successes!
So, decided to begin by washing off most of the color, especially the greens, and then covered a lot of it with white gouache. Then color, then gouache, then tinted gouache, then watercolor, and more watercolor.
Tried cropping it in iPhoto.
Then cut it in half, added more color. Done for the time being. One of those paintings that gets too much attention!
