Chameleon Commission

As a result of my first little pop-up gallery, I received a commission to paint a chameleon for a child’s bedroom. Four paintings, a lot of frustration and one week later, here he is! I tried a few species of chameleon to draw but I thought this veiled chameleon looked especially pretty. 

I used Indian ink first, then I let it dry overnight. In the morning I painted the chameleon with ink and watercolour, then finally added the background and white pen.
