Yes, I know. Watercolor is loose and splashy. Everything is supposed to be wet and runny. Nobody told me that when I started, and by the time I'd been doing it long enough to have some sense of the norms I'd already decided what I like.
I still try to work wet on wet and do work that looks more like traditional watercolor (like the one below) but subjects like this - interesting architecture - will probably always appeal to me, and I like painting them this way.
