plastering attempt

Hi Paul,
Hope all is going well. Thought I'd send you a quick snap of my first attempt since the course back in April.
All in all, I'm pretty pleased. I made plenty of mistakes (first batch mixed too strong, second batch mixed too much, trowel technique a bit dodgy and probably not enough pressure), but it seems to have come up okay.
I seem to be getting some tears in the plaster when I am doing the final trowelling - any ideas what I might be doing wrong? Do I need to wet it more?

Anyway, cheers again for all your advice.
