Ice dragon – acrylic painting

Ice dragon

She had never known that ice could take on so many shades of blue: sharp lines of indigo like the deepest sea, aquamarine shadows, even the glint of blue-green where the sun struck just so.
― Malinda Lo, Huntress

Music theme: Immigrant song – Led Zeppelin

Second dragon from dragon series.

I’ve used gloss gel medium for the 3D effect. Than  I randomly squeezed some colours on the canvas. Applying the plastic foil, I got desired texture and let it dry.

When dry, I added thick layers of white to create iceberg.  I mixed modelling paste in the color to get  structured finish.


Playing with the brush and paint, adding few shades of blue, light green and silver I let the imagination lead the way, and there is the end result (pictures taken in different light):
