Pathetic attempts to imitate the GREAT (multilayer watercolor technique)

I apologize in advance for my poor English.
I decided to master the technique of multi-layer watercolors, and share with you my experiments.
These are my rows not expect to be called a LESSON, It's just notes about my experiences
Initially, I made the first lightest layer of the tone

After drying the first layer, I began to gradually gain tone

You could try softening some of the edges.

Hi, Doug! And how to implement blurred edges in this technique...? When I draw "on wet", the blurred contours are obtained by themselves, in this technique, when I draw "on dry", how to get blurred edges...

Re: Pathetic attempts to imitate the GREAT (multilayer watercolor technique)

Run along the edges with a damp brush, that should do it. You could of course lay graduated washes in the first place or add darker colour while the wash is still wet.

Hi, Edmund Ronald!
Yes... option... but this will be painting "on wet" and blurred edges will be in the layer that will fall on the wet.
The idea of multilayer technology is that each glaze is superimposed on the completely dried previous layer
