Limited Colours Landscape Sketches

I've seen some great landscapes recently using very  limited palettes (just two or three colours) so I've decided to have a go. Here's my first sketch - I had no plan so I ended up using watercolour pencil, watercolour paint, pencil and acrylic paint! As I generally struggle with colour a bit, I actually find it enjoyable to be limited to three colours.
This one has a bit more colour but still muted.Watercolour crayons for this one, plus a bit of watercolour paint on top.

Watercolour Practice - Daffodils

More watercolour practice. This is one of the step-by-step projects in 'Ready to Paint - Watercolour Flowers' by Wendy Tait. I've cropped it down though, for a more modern look.
