Barn painting commission

Finished painting 12 x 16 watercolor and acrylic on canvas After it was dry I re worked the tree to make the leaves a little more pronounced and I changed the color of the tree trunk with acrylic
After the second wash. With this technique I can only put in 2 washes and that's pushing it. The under painting immediately dissolves when it gets wet with the next layer. It has to be much dryer paint and has to be done in one go. No going back.
This is the first wash. Putting in the large areas first. The substrate for this on is gesso on canvas
