Birthday Gift Art for Kartonis
In all the icky mess there is a red dragon, somewhere...
This is a strange pic for a strange friend. Simply put, its a red dragon rising out of dark thick sticky mud just after an afternoon rain shower. I will leave it at that. I did a dozen different experiments on this one as a I painted it. Starting with using a ruined painting attempt from last year and re-gessoing the surface with a stiff bristle brush to create texture I am not used to working on. A new way of painting the sky which is much faster and easier. Not correcting my mistakes, or smudges and letting the painting incorporate them (which the mud did a wonderful job of hiding), etc.
