A new painting Inspired by recent beautiful sunsets. I directed my eye to George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire for the setting with the city of Meereen in the background. Drogon and Daenerys at Slaver's Bay 20" x 30" Oil on Panel
The sunset is absolutely gorgeous; the use of purples, magenta's and blue hues is mesmerizing and I love how you handled the translucency of Drogon's wings. Also, really cool to see the Smaug pencil drawing fully fleshed out as an oil painting here
Thanks! The Smaug drawing was actually a derivative of this painting. I created the dragon independent of the background, and then decided to finish up the drawing later since I loved the pose so much but wanted to have some fun in a different direction!
So excellent! Gotta love the mother of dragons, and her dragons of course. Really great sunset and clouds. I was just saying the other day how I really want to figure out clouds better, especially at sunset. Really nice work, Donato.
