Watercolor - Stayers and Spreaders

More getting to know my pigments. The idea is to lay down a pigment, let it dry, then go over it with a wash to see if the pigment stays put or spreads through the water. Very important to know and incorporate into watercolor painting. I think I didn't let the colors dry all the way, because colors I know to be stayers were acting like spreaders, like my cerulean, and spreaders were acting like stayers, like the phthalos. C'est la vie.
