Artwork Description

This bright and flaming fellow was a private commission for a Celtic styled dragon set in knotwork and symbolic elements. In the four corners are placed the emblems of a needle and thread, a Celtic cross, crossed swords, and dramatic masks, flanked by what are commonly called 'Trinity knots' (the 3 lobed knots in the corners beside the emblems). He's a very noble dragon, fierce and strong, with colors of flaming reds and golds in the details of the spiral scales in his body and the knotwork in his wings.

For this I used dutch gold leaf, and watercolor, on watercolor paper. Usually I use watercolor and/or acrylics, and then of course the real or fake gold leaf is always a favorite for me. Wink Can't go wrong with more glitter!!

It's nice to see a knotwork dragon who doesn't get lost in the curlicues. It seems like it belongs on a flag.

Wow, much better than any dragon or knotwork I could do (both of which I'm just starting to learn). Knotwork is simple when it's in a staight line but you're definately a master of twisting it around!
