Watercolors starting over

Everytime I switch from Oils back to Watercolors, I have some trouble.
Evidence  shows that I tend to cover all the paper with paint at first, as if painting with oils, then later I figure it out. Finally, I start to remember to leave some of the white of the paper.

I am going to post several watercolors that I have completed lately, and I will post chronologically, so you can see how I attempt to progress out of my over-use of paint.
These are the first:

A study of Shadow.

...Could also be called a study in shadows. What a great challenge to paint something mostly black and still make it look 3-D.
My friend Noel has this wonderful old dog, and has asked if I could paint a portrait of Shadow.
This is just a preliminary study that I painted in watercolor to see what problems I will have to solve when I begin painting the final version in oils.
