Day 30: a watercolor technique

Following a youtube tutorial about two toned edges, by Scarlett Damon, I practiced using two colors to create an edge without outlining. Each of these shapes was painted with just two straight washes, the second pushing the first outward.

Using what I learned there, I tried to copy a leaf of my own, which I had found walking Emmett. (More about Emmett at Allthecrazyworld.blogspot.com) I had some problems with it, but am satisfied with my end result, and feel good about the technique.
