6 chameleons - Wip


Here are the first initial steps of my new watercolor painting.
The composition had 5 chameleons in my thumbnail drawing, but drawing freehand, not measuring strictly on the watercolor paper left space for the 6.th animal, so I go for that.
I intend to leave pencilstrokes on both animals and the measuring lines, as I personally love to look at those when other artists leave them in their work. It gives a feeling of seeing the whole process in the finished painting.
I also find such crisp pencil-lines works great with watercolors.
