Abstract Construction – Dragon Head

I began with a couple of brush strokes that formed a figure eight. I did not know what to do next except that the openings in the figure reminded me of eye-holes in a mask. I populated the holes with cadmium red and lemon yellow. The result reminded me of a dragon face.  I thought about my recent dragon sketches (East Village Dragon and In Focus, East Side Dragon) and concentrated on further enhancements.

Watercolor: Abstract - Speared Dragon Head

I tried to recreate smoke and flame as the dragon’s response to being speared through the head my an angel’s golden walking stick.
