You're doing great so far!
The composition of both paintings is well thought out and balanced.
You have not made the mistake many beginners do with over colouring / layering the watercolours leading to a muddiness of paint on paper.
The beauty of watercolours is their ethereal translucent nature and their ability to be worked with wet on wet/dry on dry/wet on dry paper etc.
Perhaps play a bit more with exploring detail and texture with the above mentioned techniques, especially in the sky/clouds, grass and trees.
I love how you rendered the mountains in the 2nd painting: beautiful use of colours and delicate overlay of paint; leaving the whiteness of paper showing - just lovely!
Keep going

Thanks a lot, it really means a lot to me, as I am a novice painter.

These are looking good!
be careful not to "overpaint" - keep the layers of watercolours very transparent as you go - then the painting will not look too muddy.
Also - a bit more texture and detail in the foreground/grass/boats etc will create interest and make the composition more convincing
I love the last one of the sunset - the colours are very atmospheric in the sky!

have fun!
