To keep the watercolour paper taut you may wish to pre-stretch the paper (see How to stretch paper video)
To retain the wetness of the paper when painting wet on wet skies and sea, paint quite quickly and swiftly.
If the paint starts to dry leave it to dry completely and re wet before applying further wet on wet washes.
Try a 5 minute sky everyday!
