Playing with colors

My first attempt at mixing colors and drawing shoes. I used yellow, red and two different shades of blue. I did notice that my brush was too thick and perhaps not meant for watercolor. The color would not leave the brush and in some areas you can see stripes of different colors.

Sketch ---I like the shape of the shoe but not the trimming and sole...so I left it simple

Some parts got muddy and I was struggling with blending the shadows so it would flow more smoothly.

My try at sequins....I found this one to be the hardest technique...I attempted several times before I was happy....what can I do to improve the technique?

and here is my final shoe...I just brushed water and then let it go where it wanted to..I let it dry and then applied another layer and just let the water go where ever...I did control the edging to give the shoe more depth.
