Illustration Friday - CAPTURE


Chameleons, along with being able to adapt and blend with their environments, also have long, sticky tongues with which they capture their prey. This can happen at up to 16 feet per second. Yikes!

Mostly played around this week, and experimented with ink, watercolors, gouache and Photoshop.

I missed this last week...I just got so caught up in "stuff" that I never really visted everyone's blogs. I love the colors and the texture you achieved with your mixed media approach. This makes me very happy that I'm not chameleon food:> And...I love your letter E!
