Drawing and watercolor painting a Rose

Happy New Year Everyone!
For about the last month or so i've been trying to practice Watercolor painting after i draw an image using a reference Photo.  I still need a lot of work but i really want to do this! lol. I've been watching video's on youtube. I found this artist that i really like to watch. The Mind of Watercolor is what it's Called. He teaches the basics including the color wheel, washes, etc... If you have any desire in watercoloring i highly recommend this man.
