Silva Draconum

Silva Draconum


'Silva Draconum' or 'Forest Dragon'.


This piece was inspired by my earlier dragon painting 'Ignis Draconum'. I had been challenged to creating a second dragon by someone close to me, who was in awe of Ignis Draconum and, due to the unpredictability of fluid art, they were doubtful that I could do it again. Well I did do it again! 


Through experience, I have gained precision in my control of the fluid paints, using appropriate recipes for the technique, exact paint consistencies, and skilled use of my tools. There are some unpredictable elements, such as the exact pattern and blending of the colours once they have been blown out and, to a degree, the shape of the edges. This is what makes fluid art so exciting and guarantees that every piece is completely unique. It is also what lends itself to the different personalities of each dragon.


When I first took on this challenge I wanted to incoporate the escapism, mystery, freedom and power of the dragon with the calming green tones of hills, woodland and forests, in which I take personal solace.  I invite my audience to enjoy the contrast, allowing deeper emotions to surface.


This original artwork is created using fluid acrylic paints and has 4 coats of high gloss vanish. There are several metallic and iridescent paints so is best positioned under a spotlight for optimal effects. The background is irridescent blue green so may appear more blue or more green in different lights.


50x70x4cm acrylics on canvas. Finished with high gloss varnish.
