Just out of my head... trying to do what someonesane is saying in his whip.
I changed the papers from smooth to rough ones and back, started on wc paper.Then i used a lot of layers... I would love to see more people doing watercolor... i know of one, who is good using wc's... Caesar....

I really like this painting, great use of color. I don't do much WC because I find it very difficult...may make another effort sometime in the future though.

Well done AT-TA! Looks like you have layer texture idea down. :)

It's probably being caused by colors hidden in the watered down strokes. Even if you're using 100% thinner (which would be visually transparent), the color you have selected still matters. For example, in the image attached to this post, I used the watercolor tool to paint a horizontal pure red line, then increased the thinner to 100% and went back over that line vertically. With the stoke on the left, I left the color selector on the pure red I used for the horizontal line. On the right line, I had switched the color selector to use a blue color. You can see that, even though I was basically using only "water", the blue color seeped out and blended with the red. So, if you're not keeping track of the colors you're using while working, it's possible to get a number of hidden hues in there, which will bleed out, making your brighter colors turn muddy.
