Color Awareness #1

I painted several watercolors on the same 14 X 20 block.  It took quite a long time and that is why I haven't posted recently.  Over the next few days, I will be posting each of the five paintings in chronological order.

Here is the first of the five of one of my favorite subjects, a lobster buoy floating in the water.  I am experimenting more with color.  I won't go into details.  All I can say is that this is a simpler approach that explores what I am calling "color awareness".  As I have stated in prior posts, I learned about using color during a studio class offered by Daniel Corey a couple of years ago.  The class was in oil painting, and I have been trying to develop techniques that would enable one to apply "color awareness" to watercolor.  What do you think?
