Great start! My main comment would be the lack of highlights in the painting. In watercolour you can achieve this by leaving parts of the paper showing through thus having a range of tones the brightest being the wite of the paper through to your darkest.In this case your trees. For tricky sections where you are worried that the paint from surrounding areas are gong to bleed into it, use a rubber paint solution first, to cover those sections. (available in art shops) when the painting is finished simply rub the dried solution off. Alternately pick some highlights out with a white watercolor or gouache.. (Water color purists please no comments on this water color sin)..Good luck with your further paintings and let us all se the results.
