Welcome To The Bitchery

I need tips from the awesome GT artists!

'Sup yo's! My boyfriend got me this "Chinese Brush Painting" kit for my birthday last year. I haven't done watercolor stuff since art class in high school so I'm basically a beginner. So far I have painted a rabbit and a monkey using the step-by-step guide that came with my kit, but now I feel stuck because I don't know what else to paint and the other animals in the book look too hard. (Like the first step for the dragon is basically "paint a fucking dragon", lol.)

Does anyone have any suggestions for where I can go to find more pictures of animals that I can reference while I paint? Or maybe easy-ish step-by-step books? I looked around but I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for. I'd love to get to the point where I can paint Beatrix Potter type stuff. I LOVE her.

Here's my bunny and my monkey!
