Dragon Dancer

I just finished this new artwork called Dragon Dancer. I first had the idea for it when I visited China last year but have only just got round to painting it. Spring is finally here in the UK and perhaps its been the cherry blossom appearing on the trees that made me want to paint it now?
The picture is all about joy, as the girl dances with this playful dragon. He swirls around her captivated by her brightly coloured fans, and the pink petals from the trees catch the wind as they fall. I really enjoyed painting it.

A big thanks to photographer `mjranum-stock for the figure reference photo that I used when painting the girl.

Beautiful, though at first glance seemed to me like the dancer was about to be clawed and eaten... :O_o:
