Granulating, Bleeder's, Settler's and Personalities or Qualities of pigment

Researching the watercolor pigments you use by creating charts or swatches of color on scratch watercolor paper is essential part of becoming a watercolor technician.
I am constantly working on my brush skill of  a good straight line and steadiness. 
Sometimes 1/2 inch masking tape comes in handy for me to clean up nicely. 
Quality brush work is like daily morning scales on the piano. 
Practice practice and practice. 
No Perfect Practice and Practice and Practice. 
Lets watch my progress on this. 
*Note to self. Self:  If its worth doing its worth doing well.  Self: Noted.
