The Dragon in the Forest
Some time ago I did a digital painting with the same theme – a dragon in the forest. You can see it here: Now I decided to have a go with coloured pencils. As you can see I changed the drawing a bit.
I used baby oil as a solvent almost all over the drawing with the exception of the left hand side of the darker tree. Here I wanted the bark to look lighter – almost white-ish.
The drawing has the size of 17×24 cm (6,7 x 9,4 inches), and I worked about 6 hours on it (from the pencil sketch to the last finish). Coloured pencils are definitely not a fast medium! But it is easy to store the drawing and the pencils away and to get them on the table again the next day.
