A Dragon's Picnic

This was a ... challenge to get the scan even close to the original colors. Something about a heavily green image when the scanner (like many scanners) is not delighted by blues. I'm hoping to submit the original, so I've cropped it -- this version works well enough in these proportions, I suppose. Watercolor underpainting (mostly Winsor&Newton), colored pencils (mostly Prismacolor), Staedler black ink, on 60 lb sketch paper (augh! What was I thinking?). I so totally should've used that new projector to transfer this darn image to a heavy paper. Still, I learned something about paints again, and about clouds. Not enough about the pencils. I'm pretty happy about the dragon colors in the original (more rose and gold). I think I desperately need to take me and paints OUTSIDE to work on shadows. I like this well enough but there's too flippin' much I don't know.
