poetry and prose about place

watching for dragons – on paper

with 10 comments

As you will know if you follow this Blog, I have been learning to work with watercolors this summer.  So far, I have painted from views associated with my virtual adventures in France and England.  But today, almost against my will, two dragons popped out on the paper.  They are also determined to appear in this post, so here they are, along with a dragon I did in soluble colored pencil back in May.

    • Hi Leigh. It’s been a great summer, with lots of time to write (and paint). I spent an afternoon in the hammock, but put my head down on a sticky pinecone and had a big knot to comb out of my hair!!!! Hope your travels were rejuvenating! Jane

  5. The dragons have a compelling feel to them, like they are ready to spring off the page and fly. Perhaps, dragons want to be painted too. What do they symbolize for you?

    • Hi. Thanks! For me, dragons mean adventure and the possibility of other realms to see. Jane
