Lunchtime watercolours

Here are two watercolours that I did  during my lunch breaks earlier in the week. My daily routine is to eat my lunch (quickly) and then spend 40 minutes painting. I usually have two watercolours on the go at the same time so I don't have to hang around waiting for pigment to dry. I find it's a great way to learn, I have to be quick and so I don't fiddle around, I just apply the paint and see what happens. I'm having a 50/50 success rate at the moment. I really want to improve my technique so squeezing in some art-time during the working-day is uplifting, I find it so frustrating when I don't find space in my life for watercolour.
