The pleasant air and wind,
with sacred thoughts
do feed my serious mind.
– Rowland Watkyns, The Poet’s Soliloquy
Music theme: The Air That I Breathe – The Hollies
I was thinking of the air.. how to paint something that couldn’t be seen?
But then, I can feel it. I can feel the air, the breeze, the wind. I can feel in colors. To me the air is blue and white, and sometimes black, sometimes with gold and silver and pearl.
So I’ve chosen light blue, white and black paint and put it on canvas, applied plastic foil several times and there was the air.
Ever wander how do dragon’s eyes look? Here they are in the plate 😉
(I use dried paint from the paint tube top).
When I lifted the foil, I looked at the unfinished picture to find my dragon. So he finally came flying from above.
I’ve painted thick layers of white and gold paint as feathers, added dreid paint eye and the Air dragon was finished.
