Painting outside the Lines

Tonight I was messing around with the Windsor Newton pocket palette just to familiarize my self with how the paints respond.  So I started this with light juicy washes very wet.  Then added midtone and darks all directly on the paper with no lines.  So I was working with shape and value very loosely.
It ended up looking like a muddled mess so I decided to get my Hero bent nib pen and do a semi blind contour sketch over the watercolor once it had dried.  Here is the outcome.  Kind of fun switching it out.
