Watercolour Woes

I fought with this damn' painting ... sometimes they go well from the start, sometimes they don't. Nothing would go right with this one, I had to keep blotting it, applying salt to damp washes.... whatever happened to fast, loose, and fancy free?
Anyway, on reflection, I've done worse. This is a quarter Imperial size watercolour (11 inches by 15, in other words) on Bockingford rough paper. And the photograph is askew, I know: normally I photograph the paintings outside, for the benefit of the light. Today, the wind is such that I'd have lost it.
I'm showing it on the POL website as well, so apologies to those who were looking for a bit of variety. I have an oil on the go as well, which I'll post here first. Fair do's.....
