Color! Now it’s getting interesting. I’ve added some base tones and some detail in the focal point. The colors tend to change as I go along, warmer and cooler as needed until I feel that its flowing correctly. As you can see I’ve changed the dragons face considerably to make him look more friendly. I still have a ton of work to do, but its beginning to come to life. This is my favorite part of the painting process by far. I will continue to play with the colors and add in all of the details.
