Tiny watercolour practice

I've seen a lot of nice illustrated prints of different subspecies lately, so I thought I'd try my hand at it a bit too. It's a good excuse to get some watercolour practice in. 

Although I've done a lot of digital watercolouring recently on SAI, I have a habit of dipping in and out of traditional watercolour before I get a chance to get a good method going. I'm using a (roughly) 5x3inch watercolour moleskine for doodling, although the tiny format is presenting challenges of its own. I'll have to branch out bigger next time to practice techniques. 

Water brushes are amazing and I really recommend them by the way.
