Daily Painting No 55- The Guardian (Still life of a globe, mini vase, and dragon)

dragon guarding treasures of my youth still life fantasy

Probably one of my best still life paintings so far. I ditched doing a line drawing first and the painting over it. Instead I painted the shadow forms and light forms, and ‘built up’ the painting this way. I made sure to take advantage of using chiaroscuro, saving me time. The two items the dragon is guarding are of sentimental value to me, I’ve had them since I was a child. I found the dragon in a thrift store. Did I mention that I’m a geek? I collect geeky stuff.

Painted in Photoshop from scratch using a wacom tablet. Time spent: 1 hour and ten minutes

I probably will not post tomorrow, but I will be back on Thursday. Take care, everyone.

    1. I just saw that I missed some of your comments. Very sorry about that. I try to respond every couple days. I upload my art a day ahead of time so I am not always on my blog.
