It's very interesting what you can find outside or inside, for example, a coffee shop or restaurant.I also am really into drawing animals, especially my three cats. No problem. (: If you have any questions, feel free to ask, I'll be glad to help. That's very interesting. I don't know many people who use mostly watercolours. Finding inspiration from the simplest things is a part of what makes drawing, and any type of art, fun.  I can't draw animals for the life of me, haha. I'm working on it though. Do you find the textures easy? Fur seems a bit complicated.
