Gouache
20 x 28 cm

Another sleeping dragon. Obviously this one has been resting for a bit longer than the previous one, as you can tell by the flora that has started occupying it. :)

I start becoming more and more accustomed to gouaches. They are a nice alternative to watercolors I think.

You did a great job with the reflections on the water and the slick look of the dragons scales.

Looks good! I love the moss/lychen touches on this one.
I have always enjoyed that gouache will let you have more control over coverage and transparency than watercolors.

Thank you!

I love gouaches for the possibilities they give regarding correcting errors, but compared to watercolors I miss their lightness a bit. Non the less I love both techniques. :)

Dragons are a bit banal subject in paintings but this one looks different! It's not too obvious. Really like that color scale, rocks and the blurry tree scape.

Haha I guess that's one of those cases where for me as the artist it is so clear and obvious, but now that you ask, I see that it actually is not too clear. The head is in the middle between it's wings, resting on it's tail with the eyes closed.
