Hawaii paintings 1

I tried to get some wet leaves look, but real brushes and paint is really hard to control, I kept thinking I could achieve that easily in Photoshop, but then telling myself again painting it exactly as is was not the point. So I kind of resigned, and hoping my technique will only improve through quantity of painting.
This is the first painting I did in Hawaii, I'm afraid texture-wise you'll find quite different than the rest of the paintings, because watercolor paint drys bloody fast!! So this first painting still have that chunky oil paint look, which I like. Man, I don't want to squeeze out fresh paint everytime, but how else am I gonna get this rich color look, as suppose to the washed-out watery look?
