    Dragon's Cave

    a dragon stands outside his cave, guarding the treasures within. a metaphor for sure.. just relaxing this afternoon, too hot for anymore yard work, but will have to give my little dragon a bath..

    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 ...
    Panta rei (everything flows)!

    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..

    thanks Caesar I wanted that pop from the juxtaposition of the orange and cobalt ...
