My inspiration for this art work was my love of the Chameleons. I first saw one in a zoo which on one hand made me so happy to see this beautiful creature but made me very sad it was not home in the wild. I since found out that many chameleons are listed as endangered which broke my heart. I wished to raise the awarness of this amazing creature and that it is really struggling in numbers. I first drew the lesser chameleon that is found in Madagascar in pen giving it shape and texture. I then painted in water colour and oil paint to show the amazing array of pattern and colour. I wanted it to show the fun and happy side to this little creature by creating a fun painting.
