tip on how to do a watercolor underpainting

I continue to show fields from Washington. Both of these were done on location. The larger of the two has a watercolor underpainting.
The most important thing to remember when doing an underpainting is that value matters. That way you are not just covering up the beauty of the watercolor. You can experiment with colors but always make the values in you underpainting correct.
