Water and Reflections

I was just reading about reflections in a Zoltan Szabo's book on 70 Watercolor Techniques.  This is my second try at it.  Trying to simplify the strokes and washes.   I used a 1" flat wash from Daniel Smith. The watercolor washes went down beautifully.  The brush held a lot of water and laid down some juicy paint.

The following is the first study I did from a photograph in a book.  It came out too busy.  Too many reflections and there was not focus to the image.   Too many things competing with each other.  I simplified it in the second sketch.  The watercolor brush in this was also a smaller brush probably a size 10 or 12 brush.  I like the second try better.
