Lying In Wait - Dragon & Princess Art Drawing

"Lying In Wait" features an unsuspecting maiden princess traveling at breakneck speed into the clutches of a ravenous dragon.

This piece was inspired by a speed trap set by a clever policeman on a back country road. The police car was hidden in a long driveway flanked by tall bushes and as we maneuvered the twisting road, we spotted the flash of shiny cobalt blue. Needless to say, we were quite grateful that we were not speeding at the time and laughed that he was "like a dragon, lying in wait for passing travelers". This original drawing is the manifestation of that conversation.

Graphite, pencil, ink, colored pencil and pastel were used to create this original artwork. The colors are bold and you can see and feel the texture in the stone wall, the bark of the trees and the scales of the dragon. I am incredibly proud of this piece of fine art.

This original artwork is 12 x 18 inches (30.5 x 46 cm). Once matted, it will frame nicely to 16 x 20 (41 x 51 cm).

Both the original and the print are available in my Etsy shop!
