WINTER MAGIC - WATER DRAGON

Have finally started work on my Winter Magic Water Dragon
for the Artstreet competition......
I am really lucky, as I am showing my work in Omnia which
is a beautiful Asian/Retro/Manga shop up the top of
Katoomba Str..

I have been inspired to use more recycled material in my work,
so have taken boxes and then done a paper-mache layer on the
outside then a basic undercoat........

I am really enjoying painting on form which gives you great
opportunities to play with shape and movement in a totally
different way.

Without further a due here is what I have created so far:











































































































And here is the big one which will have a lot of the Water Dragon
on it with the head and more watery wings.......




















I am happy so far, but there is still quite a bit to do.
Besides the obvious of painting the big box and painting
the dragon, there is also a lot of finer detail and glazing
to work at, but I am happy with the process so far.......

Hi You won the rainbow flags on faerymother... It's amazing that both my giveaway sets end up meters from each other( I have gathered that you live next to the other set) maybe it's a place of high faery activity- this is what I am thinking anyway- send me your address via faerymother@hotmail.com, and I will send them out to you.... Yay
