Artwork Description

Nightmare piece - perseverence was never this hard before.I've been wanting to paint this moment for ages and have tried - and failed - a number of times to get it right. To me, the greatest literary dragon.

At last! A REAL 'northern' dragon! Just as I always imagined him - sleek and deadly. Got any more?

This is actually how I have always pictured Smaug in my mind. Ever since I read The Hobbit all those years ago....

Many thanks - it's nice to know that I got it right, I was beginning to wonder. I spent so long doing it that I was sick to the back teeth with the thing by the end but it has reclaimed it's position close to my heart, if not the lounge wall as somebody bought it.
