Google "animal silhouette" or use one from below. Draw the light outline of the animal of your choice on a piece of watercolor paper in the back of your sketchbook. Don't make it too small. Fill most of the page.
Paint a landscape within the shape using your watercolors. Layers of sky, hills, trees, and grass work well. Remember to let layers dry so they don't bleed together. You can speed up the process with a hair dryer.
I have included two examples that I have painted.
