gouache. An entry in a t-shirt design contest for a children's book club.
This is my son! I'm so amazed to see this because I have the original hanging in my house and my boy is now 18. We both love this painting and treasure it. I'm so happy to see it making other people happy too!
I babysat my best friends kids tonite,Ceira-16, Jenny-10, Fallen-5. About 4 or 5 pictures into your gallery I was able turn off cartoon network as we checked out your gallery, and though you might not have won the contest Fallen has decided she can read that many books too (when she learns to read) so we want you to know to us your the winner!
PS when you have prints of your artwork for sale please let me know
Thanks for kind words! I hope to have a print available of this soon (and others). You always wish you kept the original, but I gave it to the boy who posed for this and his mother. I think they're in Alaska now...
I love this! My eight-year old is a book worm and adores dragons. What a wonderful piece!
Thank you for your kind words. They are most appreciated.
Your work is breath taking. I have never seen anything quite so beautiful. Thank you for sharing your gift with me. I have only looked at a few of your works and I can't decide which one I like the best.
Wow i can't believe you didn't win that contest this an is absolutely stunning piece of work. I love the colours and the faces of the caracters. i'm definetely a fan!
Thank you, Joanna!
I think it's just the way I scanned the picture (I don't have the world's greatest scanner, unfortunately) but it made the paper look like it had texture, as with paper for pastels. But it's just an ordinary sheet of vellum-finish bristol paper from a pad.
The boy was the son of a co-worker and the picture was for a contest promoting a children's reading group. (I didn't win...snif
Absolutely enchanting! The dragon with his sparkling eyes is beautiful and the excited look on the boys face...I remember being just the same when my Mum read me my daily night-time fairy story!
May I ask what kind of paper you use? The texture looks as if it were made for pastels? Not that it matters...stunning work, as usual)
