Thanks everyone for your kind comments
The black outlines were done using a brush pen, a new tool for me...lol... need more practice!
OK, here's something else I can do
I like to make side tables! I find demi-lune or half-circle tables at antique fairs, paint them red and draw the buddha and dragons in gold.
Here's an example. Kinda hard to see, but the dragons are on either side of buddha's head:
The pearl Anthony pointed out is an interseting symbol. It has a negative charge and when it comes in contact with the positive charge of a dragon, kaboom! Lightning bolts and thunder descend from the sky. Legend is a minister healed a serpent, who was actually the son of the dragon king, and in return the serpent "disgorged" a brilliant pearl from it's mouth. The minister presented the emperor with the pearl and it shone with such brilliance that "the night became the day." It is believed to protect against harm from fire, and dragons are often depicted fighting for them across the sky.
I am researching dragons for a canvas I have stretched and waiting
