Hi Annabelle,
You’re welcome, and no worries about not replying 😉
Re watercolours: I work in watercolour too, mostly in the summer when I draw the working farms in my hometown. I have never experimented in the way I did with acrylics, but knowing the materials it will be different I think. You could try limiting to the same colours on your palette as I described with the acrylics. Mixing on your palette of course, and perhaps washes over (almost) dry swatches of colour on paper? I often juxtapose colours in that way (complement colours).
The first nice warm day that comes along I will get on my bike and try this out! I love experimenting!
