It's really fine. Your dragon lives in a marvellous abode indeed! I like the geometric shapes that take tridimensionality and the palette, especially the orange framing the cobalt/ cerulean elements and the colorful pile of the jewels inside, behind the gate bars ...

Nicely done friend,
Steve thanks Steve, but abstracts since they don't have to represent flesh tones for example can be more saturated and work in the painting..plus I work large value changes next to the complementary colors with also makes them pop out more especially when close to neutrals, that is why I like using the HSV so I can quickly pick color which have the same S,V values and then work in changes to V .. which I am sure you know..:):):rolleyes::rolleyes::cool::cool:
