Learning how to Paint?

Moving into untested waters, I decided to try my hand at watercolor painting an ATC. I quickly learned that, like most art, this type of media is more complicated that it looks and probably requires years of instruction in order to do it right. One website I looked at stated that the first 100 or so paintings don't even really count.

So, I am really going out on a limb here posting my first attempts at watercolors.  I may have overdone the sunflower theme, but I found that it helps to do it over and over until you figure out the best way to get good results.
