I like both the idea and the results. I would try also the Indigo- B. Sienna- Y. Ochre OR White triad.
Did you tried to use these waterbrushes along with regular watercolours? To use for instance the waterbrush that is filled with yellow to take colour from a pan filled with blue and then paint in an angle in order to make the tip paint blue and the belly of the brush yellow. Give it a try please. I'm curious to see what will happen.

Now regarding clogging. You can avoid clogging if you don't allow the watercolour paint to dry into the front mechanism of the waterbrush. There is a sponge in there. If that sponge gets full of dry watercolour then the only way to clean it is by disassembling completely the brush. That it is easy to be done ( by why to get into that trouble anyway.... )
Adding some drops of glycerine into the watercolour mix and store the brushes with the point downwards would help to avoid the paint to dry close to the bristles. I think that it would be also a good idea to add a tiny bead into their reservoir in order to mix the particles of the watercolour better by shaking the brush before using it as sooner or later the paint particles will separate from the water that they are dissolved into it.

As I told you the other day, glazing and layering is time consuming technique. But it gives great results and I would say that it suits to your sketching style. I think that you have to invest some time to master the technique.
What is the paper that you used? I like its texture. What is this?
