But the mess is the charm. The secret, as this artist might reveal, is not to care so much, but to "stay loose" but with a deft touch and a certain judicious reticence. I suppose this is not as easy as it sounds. But that's the magic, particularly of the water color--the combination of spontaneity and control.

What absolutely does not work is hesitant "sketching" with trial-and-error repetitive strokes ("chicken scratching") or reworking with many layers, which turns the transparent medium to opague mud. Above all, one has to be aware of making the white paper work.
