Water dragon – acrylic painting

Water dragon

Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember you are half water. If you can’t go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.
― Margaret Atwood, The Penelopiad

Music theme: Water  – The Who

Another one from the Dragons series, I’ve already mentioned in previous posts (Ice dragon and Fire dragon) and one of 4 elements dragons (along with Earth dragon, Fire dragon and Air dragon).

I’ve used similar technique as for the other two. First I randomly squeezed paint on the canvas, directly from the tubes. I’ve used the colors of blue and green hues and mixed them on the canvas with the palette knife.

When dry, I painted the dragon with thick layers of silver paint as scales on dragon’s body.


The texture is visibile on the negative – it almost looks like an X-ray picture of the livnig creature :).
