A young, talented art student needs advice. She did a beautiful sketch for an assignment, but had a *really* hard time with watercoloring it. Here's the final piece. It's set in a grotto-like space, with light coming from above near the waterfall, but she had problems making that area bright, making water further away really dark, with lighting, layering, shadowing, etc. She's great with acrylic, but unfortunately needs to work in watercolor again *soon*. She had a fairly basic student watercolor set, and used Arches watercolor paper." Any advice on what she can do to rapidly improve in the medium?
