Being the year of the dragon... I had to post this one, a blast from the past!
I completed this watercolor many years ago now and have long since evolved in many different directions since, but this has always been one of those pieces I return to from time to time remembering how far I have come.
This was a "biggie" for me in it's day both in it's physical size and magnitude coming in at almost 22x30 in. (big for a watercolor). Art is weird that way, it's not just an expression of that moment in your life but a record of who you were and what you have become. It took some time to complete this one, and I labored over it back in those days, but it taught me the value of not only watercolor as a medium, but sticking to it and holding true to your vision. I am still proud of this one and how far I have come!
Below are some detail shots (click to enlarge). Enjoy... and Happy New Year!
