I'm teaching myself how to watercolor! Any tips? :)

looking good!
try limiting your palette. Try practicing with smaller monochromatic pieces where you are only trying to handle the value using watercolor.
Make it your goal to stay away from muddiness in the color and try building up the values with light washes.
Also, for practice, don't pencil things out but rather work with shapes and try to build up your pieces focusing on the shapes of light and dark.

Good work so far! :D
