Catch Fairest Breeze WIP

Hello, hello!  I know it's been ages since I last posted anything.  I have been in a dry spell since August or so, but now the gears are unstuck and I'm working my tail off.  Happily, I might add.  Here's a work-in-progress that I recently finished up:

This is the dragon design for "Catch Fairest Breeze".  The final composition will be a layered affair with plenty of shiny bits.  I mean, really, a color scheme like this just howls for shiny bits, doesn't it?  

The dragon will be partly cut out, while preserving some of the nice color gradients in the background, and mounted on a slightly larger board.  I have a nice sodalite stone and a Fuze-glass bauble that will be included, and then additional small stones, shiny bits, scrapbook paper, and other fun elements as the mood strikes me.  

Mediums so far:  watercolor (with salt), ink, Prismacolor pencil, gel pens.

Beautiful, I love the colour choices!

Also i accidentally unfollowed ya >.> But I followed ya back. DA should ask "do you want to unfollow?" So accidents like this are less likely

Thanks very much, and WELCOME BACK, OMG. 🤪

Sounds like they need to tweak that option, and I bet you're not the only one who has run into this.

Looking great so far - and the color scheme is indeed stunning! Can't wait to see the finished piece!
