Watercolour on hand made rag paper

The model is my beautiful niece, Rachelle.

Once again I am revisiting my interest in miniature dragons.



dragon, warrior, valkyrie, ruins, night

Thank you for stopping by and having a look.

    Wonderful series Kris, and this is my favourite. Excellent choice of hues that are well placed around the page. The pose of the dragon, and the person feel natural and comfortable. And so much mythology!. Love it.

  • Thankyou, I spend equally as much time deciding on colours as I do the pose. I was concerned that the ruins in the background would be too dominant – I’m still not sure that they don’t detract from the image. :-)

    They are fine, and strengthen the presence of the dragon.

  • thanks for your reassuring words
