I painted everything in the picture with the exception of the velvet ottoman and the print design on the lady's dress. The dragon was especially fun to do but I could not get all of this painting in this picture. To fill in the outline of the lady's skirt and the trim on her top, I found a photograph of my garden flowers which I did last summer, and placed it on her outfit, using the transformer and puppet warp tools. mixed media Member reactions:
Super cool, I appreciate the effort. Real art work
The upcoming year 2012 is The Year of The Dragon. In Chinese astrology the dragon is the only animal of the Chinese zodiac that is not real. Yet, the dragon is seen as a powerful almighty king because it was made up of different parts of animals such as a tiger, fish, snake and an eagle.
To greet the upcoming 2012 Year of The Dragon, create your own dragon by using parts of different animals.
