More Dragons

This post continues on from my previous post about dragons.

The continuing part is the wonderful news that my latest dragon painting is finished!

And here are the in progress shots, which those of you who follow me on social media, will have seen higglety-pigglety over the last few months.

First up is the initial pencil sketch.

Believe it or not I actually had a purpose to this painting (most of mine do, usually exploring to see what I can do). This was an exercise in colour theory, form and imagination. Despite it taking so long due to other work taking my time, I am enthusiastic to paint some more dragons. I’m also tending to consider some mermaid paintings. Fantasy art is something I’m quite excited to explore.

Oh, and even better? This painting sold before it came off my easel 😀 Many thanks to the wonderful people who support my art!

I’m also adding this to the wonderful group over at Paint Party Friday. Go over there and check out some of the fabulous artists!

Best wishes,

  1. I love your dragon!!! The colors are awesome and it’s expression is precious! I always enjoy seeing how a piece comes together, thank you for sharing your process. Happy PPF! Rasz

    1. Thankyou, Rasz! I must admit, he turned into quite a character and I enjoyed playing with those colours as they are wonderfully opposite to each other.

      Happy PPF!

      Best wishes,
