Very good watercolour! It is pleasant to me.
ps. watercolour is difficult to draw, IMHO :)

Thank you for your comment!

For me is opposite - aquarelle is much more easier than oils.

It's just my first steps in this technique, I would like to master it more deep. :)

Gzairborne, thank you for warm comment! :)

I used just "default" water-colour paper settings: File->New Painting->Canvas->select "WaterColor" where Roughness=100 (by default); Grain Size=21 (custom). Then I used several layers and several of them I "washed" (blur) with Palette Knife.

I want to get aqurelle more real with down-flows etc.

do you know what settings you used to make the watercolor washes?

Dear Gzairborne, here are some samples for your (see picture). :)

All settings were "by default", type was "wet" and I changed only sizes of knife.

I hope it will be useful for you.

Dear AT-TA! Thank you for comment.

Water-color is a bit easier for me than oil technique. But I will definitely try oil and etc later on! :)
