High Horion Line with a Horizontal composition

I went back to the book, "Celebrate Your Creative Self!"  This particular exercise was designed to teach the composition using a high horizon line in horizontal format.  I decided to use a chip of illustration board which is 8 1/2" x 4 1/2", and a limited palette of burnt sienna, ultramarine blue, sepia and touches of alizarin crimson.
This afternoon I prepared a demo sheet  on the rose succulent painting which I sent out to the Watercolor Workshop Yahoo group.

I downloaded your PDF of the succulent painting. Very helpful. I subscribe to your blog via RSS feed, and really enjoy seeing what you do each day.
