Chameleon - watercolors

I am really practicing with my watercolors these days. Again a painting emphazising the colors more than anything. I just love the way watercolors can be layered with a transparency not possible with any other media I have tried.
I also find that graphite and watercolors are a beautiful mix. Delicate pencilstrokes showing through is what I try to achieve, together with a rather loose, but still shaped application of colors.
I attach the finished painting, size A4 and a closeup for a better view of the play of graphite and watercolors.
