Dragons - Commission by AniaMohrbacher Dragons - Commission by AniaMohrbacher
This piece was a commission and a challenge to me for two reasons. I generally do not paint dragons, and I usually paint on very small scale. (11"x 14" at most!) There's a lot of things I would have changed if I could start over, but I also feel that I've learned a lot about painting and about acrylics through this image. I hope that you'll like it :)!

18"x24" Acrylic on canvas.

What a lovely style! A very pretty image, we love the tones and flowing details. :heart:

It seems one of our Dragons likes it as well! :)

I absolutely love it! The hues of blue are just gorgeous, and the detail is exquisite. (My love of dragons may also have something to do with it, haha.)

Thank you :D I should pick up mine too... when it comes to traditional media, recently I've been working mainly with watercolors. (because they are versatile and you can easily take them with you) I'm glad that you like how this painting turned out!

Very pretty!
I like trunk, rocks and dragon's faces (in particular that with butterfly).
It's interesting contrast, you know? Heavy rocks, "heavy dragons" and light butterfly =)


I must :+fav: it!

Nie wiedzialam ze mowisz po Polsku do momentu kiedy odwiedzilam twoja strone :) No i szczerze mowiac, czuje sie bezpieczniej z angielskim, bo polskiego urzywam jedynie w domu :D

A tak swoja droga to jestes zbyt skromna w stosunku do twojej wiedzy jezyka! Zapewniam cie, ze sie nie blaznisz!

Dzięki :) podbudowało mnie to. Serio.
Aj, aż chciałoby się kiedykolwiek poczuć się bezpieczniej z angielskim ;)
Chociaż z moim zapałem może uda mi się to osągnąć za jakieś sto lat :)

A, no i tak sobie myślę, że będę obserwować Twoje konto =)

Hmm trudno sie jest czuc jezykiem bezpiecznie, do puki martwisz sie tym co sobie ludzie pomysla :D Gdy przyjechalam do U.S.A. nie za bardzo znalam jezyk i na poczatku balam sie odezwac, bo wiedzialam ze nie mowie poprawnie. W koncu jednak stwierdzilam ze to nie ma znaczenia jak co powiem, jesli mnie zrozumieja :) (no i troche czasu to zajelo, ale teraz jest OK) Ale Ty sobie na prawde dobrze radzisz, wiec oby tak dalej!

No i dzieki za obserwowanie konta :D (choc musze Cie zmartwic, bo za zwyczaj nie maluje smokow!)

Like I mentioned in your journal, I love this one! I agree that you totally outdid yourself with this piece, Ania! The blue dragons are so pretty, and I love the butterfly on the closest dragon's nose hehe. The larger canvas allowed for so much more lush details to fill the space which I love in this piece. One of my favorite parts is all the rich detail in the grass. It has so much color, depth, and movement. This is definitely one of my favs of yours and I hope you do more pieces like this on larger canvases :hug:

The moment I opened this new picture up from you, I knew that it was going to be something very magical (even more so than usual). There's a sense of good-nature to the dragons sensitivity and peace with the surrounding, perhaps because of the resting butterfly on its snout, or the matching background colors. Very lovely overall ^-^.

Wow Ania, you really outdid yourself. ^_^

The depth to this piece is really nice, especially the atmospheric perspective. I love the subtle blue light reflections on the branch in the front, and the texture to the dragons' heads. The eyes are reeeally nice too.

I'm glad you finally finished it! *faves*

Ah no I usually scan them in pieces and then patch them in Photoshop :( *which is time consuming* I don't think I have good enough of a camera to be able to succesfully take photos of them!
