Experimenting with watercolor paints

I've been practicing my watercolor painting skills as I'll have the opportunity to teach a beginning watercolor class in 2018.  I'm still in the beginner skill set myself, so I try to practice on a regular basis.  I've already learned a lot by just playing around with the paints.   My biggest lesson is that watercolors react differently when applied to an area where I've erased.  This was a sad discovery for me as the eraser is my best friend.  For my next painting, I'm going to try to sketch with watercolor pencils and try to separate myself from my eraser.  Separation Anxiety, here I come . . .
