Trying to paint autumn landscapes in gouache

Trying to paint autumn landscapes in gouache - student project

I'll be honest, I feel like a total failure. I tried to paint on a smallish piece of paper, because a full A4 was giving me anxiety. ^^; Even then it was pretty difficult. I did find it extremely helpful that the teacher kept saying we shouldn't use too much water. That was definitely important info for me. Still, getting the right consistency was hard... Ah well, I tried.

I think I should take the gouache sky class first, before going further. ^^;
