Fire Dragon

A christmas gift, and an opportunity to finish an old illustration of my Mythos series.

A fire Dragon having some fun...
All done in tempera, it was really a pleasure to paint, and I really hope the start of a series of illustrations in a similar technique and format. Is not big, like 4 inches/10 cm side.
Tempera is ideal to work in small formats, like the old illuminated manuscripts, which I love love love.

Since this was a gift, I had to frame it, I found and already done frame perfect for the Dragon (actually I found it before defining the final size).
Here a picture of it completed.

I'm happy, I hope you like it.
