"Lilacs and Dragon"

"Lilacs and Dragon," oil on hardboard, 8"x16"- (update sold.)

My new painting  just completed.  I took my time on this one, worked on it off and on over two months. With gentle brush strokes, I slowly applied thin coats of paint.  I often used Old Masters Maroger Painting Medium throughout the development of the painting.  I really enjoyed incorporating lilacs in the painting.  First time I've painted them.  Hope you like it!  Thank you for visiting my blog.

  1. Hi Amanda,
    You did this technique well. And a great subtle radial design it has, spinning off the dragon vase... more.
    Hope all id well in the OC, it's windy here right now.

    Keep painting...

  2. Hi David, Thank you! I was holding on to this one for Art A Fair opening soon for the summer, but just old it! Lovely when that happens, but need to paint more, more, more!
