View Full Version : first attempt at dragon painting
I'm new to this forum, usually hang out in Plein Aire. I had a chance to do a dragon for the guy who makes my website; kind of a barter trade. He hasn't seen it yet. I thought I'd get some input from some experts first. All suggestions welcome, as this is new to me. :D
acrylic on canvas, 24 x 36

It looks great to me! It's a fascinating image you've created, with the smoke and fiery colors, it looks almost like the dragon is in a volcano. And the dragon istelf is wonderful, I like the scales effect you've achieved, and the long claws are neat.

Oh Ruth! You need to do more fantasy work :D This dragon with the background of that turbulent sky is wonderful. I gave up on acrylics a long time ago, but you have really shown how that medium can be manipulated. I love the misty look you achieved. One of my favorite parts of the dragon though is (and don't laugh) is that tail! It seems to go on forever, and I would hate to be lashed by something that far reaching and strong......lol

:D OOOOOO! I like it! Rough and gutsy! Love that left back toenail, how it is caught on a rock upskewed!
jana:D :clap: ;)
Hey, welcome to the forum!!! It must be a tad different going from en plein aire to our funky little mystical world. You can totally see the aire-ness to this piece, which gives it such an interesting feeling. Your colours are georgious, and yey! You gave him scales. I'm so happy now :cat: Great work, your friend will love it!
:D Thank you all so much for your warm welcome and kind comments! I had a lot of fun doing this dragon, and will probably try some more sometime. You'll be the first to see! Thanks again.
