Mistress of Dragons by RalphHorsley
Mistress of Dragons
Mistress of Dragons.

Graphite on illustration board.
Approx 28" x 18".

I have decided to tackle that very popular fantasy trope of 'woman with dragon' - of course I decided to up the ante and add a few more Dragons...

This is the completed line sketch. I am pretty happy with how this has turned out. Next I will need to gesso the board in preparation for the oils, and whilst its drying I will do a digital study of the values and palette.

I have now set up a dedicated print shop at The benefit of this site is that they use a variety of print on demand vendors located in the USA, UK, and Australia, which means that shipping costs are kept to a minimum.

I am going to continue to add more images to the site, and if there any pieces you would like to see as prints please ask and I'll upload them.
