In reply to Bovey Belle's question about the Steam painting, the cogs and wheels operate a huge door inside the cave where the Dragon riders live. All the details are lost behind the Dragon's steamy breath, but the title also refers to the Steampunk theme. The Dragon and Fairy are waiting to leave the cave to go and fight their latest mission :D
For those interested, I grew up reading the Anne McCaffrey dragon books and this is more than likely where my abiding love of Dragons came from. Fairies were definitely brought to life for me by Brian Froud, which is strange as I find myself drawing and painting traditional fairies, yet if they existed (of course they do) I believe they'd be grubby and more than a bit scarey!
So back to 'normal land' today with a commissioned painting of a little Parson's Jack Russell Terrier!
the glossy highlights.
