Little Hedgehog - student project

Little Hedgehog - image 1 - student projectHi, I am a newbie in this watercolour painting and this little Hedgehog is my first animal painting. I found it a bit tricky to do the contrast between the ears and the head, then I tried with darker shade and it looks quite nice but still looked a bit flat, not sure what is exactly i'm looking for.  I've practice colour blending wet on wet at the ears and tummy area and I really like the outcome, I’ve also using Cat's  technique to create blooming spots at the cheeks area and I think it makes this hedgehog looking more natural. Please let me know what do you think. 

Thanks Cat for this excellent class.
