I took some time out today to start sketching some dragons. It was a lot of fun to get back into my art and enjoy the process of creating on the page.
Below are some photos of my first dragon portrait. It’s an idea that I’m developing and hope to create a far more intricate image in the coming months. But for now, this drawing is about exploring possibilities.
Exploring possibilities is part of the fun of developing my artistic/creative expression. It also gives my left brain a break and allows my right brain the opportunity to take the driver’s seat.
I’m pretty happy with my dragon line drawing and I am looking forward to developing her further.
The second dragon I sketched today took about an hour and a half to create. I’m also rather happy with how the image turned out.
I think that this sketch can be developed further and more depth given to it, but for now, I am happy with the results of my time playing on water paper.
I chose not add water or colour to the sketch. I wanted to spend my time developing a dragon from my imagination and seeing how it came out on the page.
Today, it’s Saturday in Australia and I’m now two weeks away from my trip to the UK. I finally gave in and got myself a ‘selfie stick’ so maybe when I get back home at the end of September, I’ll have some other photos to share. I also hope this trip fills up my creative bucket with new ideas for creative writing.
15 days and counting down.
Have a great creative day (or night)!
