New Class on Bromeliads

I am currently taking a course in watercolor, painting bromeliads. Since I have been working with mostly colored pencils, lately, I am definitely out of touch with my painterly side. So, I am spending a lot of time practicing my painting strokes, and it's quite a struggle. I found a great Bromeliad to paint.... at the clearance area of Lowe's. There aren't a lot of Bromeliads to be found locally, right now. However, I am thrilled with mine, and I think it will prove to be the appropriate challenge for me.

Yikes, my painting needs work.
I want to just start over with colored pencil...

Arches 140 #, Hot Press paper
and a good #6 watercolor brush
and practice, practice, practice.....
