Oddly, it's not the stretched-out dragon so much as the colour of the walls and and fluffiness of the pillows that give this picture its air of exquisite autumnal laziness, although the dragon is a nice detail. I would definitely stay indoors in that room!

Oh! Oh! I want a baby dragon! Or... pet dragon... Whatever it is, I want one! I will call it Fluffy and it would be all mine, ALL MINE!
I love your colouring, especially the colours you use. They're soothing for the eye...
The girl (fairy?) is way too concentrated on her book, can't she see the dragon wanting her attention? Oy! Girlie! Why don't you go and play some ball with the pet dragon?
Er... Like the pic, love the colours... Too bad the dragon ran away... *tries to hide the little dragon's tail under the shirt* Gotta go! C ya! *struts away* Sara M Osth

Wow! That little dragon... It's just like my sisters rabbit! Kawaii! Cant figure out weather it's dead or asleep though. O_o ...wait a minute... Did she smack him in the head with the book!? *Evil glare* If so, i swear I'll... *Mumbles in agony*
But, to get to the point before lunch. I like the picture, and you're certainly doing great with water-colours. The shading is discreet but effective, the soft but not outstanding rounding of the pillows makes them very natural and the girl's hair gives her a very relaxed and comfortable look. The window has it's flaws, but that's what I'd expect from a window of such class in that era. The way the paint blurs on the walls gives the room a very cosy and old character. The dragon is well placed as a decoration of the drawing instead of a main character. The grey haze and the falling leaves gives a good impression of autumn. Well, I'm sorry to quit the praising about there, but I've got a little bit whining to do as well. First of all, the dress makes the girl look a bit chubby. Also, I find her hands a bit small. The curtains are pretty good, bit it's a pity how they meets the floor. It's like they wrinkle up to avoid something (perhaps the dragon. Fabric and fire ain't much of a good combo). A bit more grace to the way the curtains fall would fit well into the corner. *Sighs and scratches his neck* Don't take my word for it though. When reading this post I find myself quite a whiner. Well, commenting art on starving stomach has never been my best skill. I promise I'll go fill it for the next drawing. Yet, I like the picture. Might very well be one of your better. Sara M Osth
replies: "Oh, and here we go again. You must be one of my more faithful commenteers by now. And I like whining; if I don't agree, I can always bonk people on their heads, and that does always make me feel better. Her left hand -is- somewhat to small, but the right one does look fairly proportional to me. Chubby? Yes, well, maybe. Part the dress: that kind of dress does make people look chubby, that's part of the point. Secondly: what if she IS chubby? Autumnal fairies might be, I think. But the curtains... yes. I love draperies, but I have to little patience. And I'm lousy at inking; hence the strange feeling (that you put quite accurately) that they don't fall to the floor/bed; there's no real movement downwards. At some point I should do something like this on better paper, and pay attention to the details. Thanks again!"

I really like this piece. It could be mostly because of the feeling to it. It's relaxed and calm, like a nice autumn day. I love the colour emphasizing the season, and everything seems to have it's place. Very peaceful. Nice work. Sara M Osth
replies: "I'm glad you like it - that feeling was what I aimed for, so I'm of course happy that it came through in the picture. Thanks for commenting!"

First of all - I adore the dragon. Great job with the colours, and the atmosphere is lovely. Sara M Osth
replies: "I've always wanted a wee dragon as a pet. I mean, it could light your fire, bite people you don't like... Sadly, I can only draw them."

This is just LOVELY. Would you consider selling it? Sara M Osth
