dragon image step 2
The shadows and darks are underpainted in indigo blue; the splashes of sunlight in New Gambouge yellow. One can get a nice gray by mixing indigo and burnt sienna. Later I will paint over these colors with varying shades of greens, reds, blues, etc. I haven't even decided yet what color the dragon will be!
This image is inspired by a Qi Gong movement called Dragon Emerging from the Sea. The sea is the dantien, the cauldron of power we hold in our bellies, and in this movement, our fists are bring the energy, the Chi, out from the dantien.
