The Great Dragon of Merlin stories.
A constant help to Merlin,
almost up to the end.
The next to the last dragon.
I had never drawn anything like this before.
No animals, nothing elaborate.
I started with a loose sketch – just the basic lines.
Then I added some tangles.
Not a lot, just enough.
Then I added color using
Schmincke watercolor pans.
Great, bright, bold colors in this set.
Once I got the colors I wanted,
I held the paper straight up and down over the trashcan,
and used a spray bottle to spray water over the whole thing. I let the water run and spread,
then blotted the drawing with a paper towel.
I named him Kilgharrah –
he is going to be part of a topper
for my new blog –
This blog is going to feature my dragons,
and photographs of Maine.
A photographic journal,
so to speak.
And you get a front row seat.
