I used Gordon MacKenzie's book, The Complete Watercolorist's Essential Notebook, as a reference on how to achieve different effects. My hog bristle brush worked amazingly well at laying down the water for wet in wet, and for the colors too. It is very thirsty so you can really load it up. I can't wait to do some more experimenting!
