Purple Gargoyle Needs A Name, 8" x 10" watercolor on Arches 140#
Edit: His name is "Night Guardian"
I LOVE this guy! I'm really happy with him. I believe the paper made all the difference. Arches is the absolute best! I also used quinacrodone pigments, which are incredibly transparent -- quin gold on the moon, belly, and wings; quin violet in the body. I used hooker's green for underpainting, but I won't do that again. I'm not completely happy with its effect as a complementary color.
Another Cliff-Dwelling Dragon, 15" x 19" watercolor on Canson 140#
This is the largest painting I've done so far. The background when in quickly and easily, but I labored on the dragon a bit too much. As it stands, this will be my centerpiece in my ConQuesT art show display in late May. He might become a print, as well.

I'm really intrigued by his eyes. I'm not sure how I'm going to keep their expressiveness when I apply color to the pupil.
