Dragon, commission in progress, by Amy Crook

Dragon, commission in progress, by Amy Crook

Just a little work in progress today, a teaser of the textured skin on Molly’s oil-painted dragon. It’s taken ages to get even this far, since I have to let the thick scales dry between painting sessions or I just smear them when I’m working elsewhere, and I still have his hoard, the details on the forest, and even his face to finish. Or is it a her, in the rich warm purples and blues? The paint I’m using is iridescent, which makes the whole dragon shine on the canvas, especially with the extra physical texture of the impasto.
