What size paper did you use for this? And on average, how big is each gesture?

Beautiful style. I'm thinking of getting a watercolor tattoo in this style, you don't happen to have similar stuff with chameleons , do you? :)

Hi, thanks for looking!
Unfortunately, no chameleons in my arsenal. But a chameleon sounds like a great idea; good luck finding one as a tattoo! :D

Sweet gestures! Did you use tube watercolor or liquid watercolor?

Hi!

I used Winsor Newton Artists' Water Colour tubes ( [link]. I actually haven't tried using liquid watercolors seriously before so I can't really comment on it, but I imagine I'd still prefer tube paints since I prefer being able to control how wet or dry the paint is.

Thanks for looking!

Save all these :) I wish I had and now regret not being more careful. These are great when you need to add a perspective object and can't decide or just need that added motivation. Looks great
