I adore your combination of Victorian and fantasy! It’s fun that you added to the contrast of concepts with a contrast of color. :) I think it would be fascinating to limit that contrast so Victorian and fantasy can blend together. I wonder how Victorian fashion would impact the presentation of dragons… Would they dress them up for portraits?

Wow, I'm amazed you could get such detail in a 5 x 7! I love how classical this looks, and then boom - there's a little dragon thrown in there to remind you it's not classical. :)

I hesitate to ask, but I could not find the answers either on your website nor here. I always like to know different artists' preferred methods, and so am curious as to what your favourite underpainting colours are, whether you paint on white or prefer to use a layer of, say, grey (I don't know the proper terminology in English, I am sorry), and whether you have any favourite type of brush or not (round, flat etc). Of course, if you prefer not to answer, I don't mind at all, it's just curiosity!

And now on to the praise: It always makes my day a lot better to sit and admire your paintings, whether they are more fantastical or portraits, like this one. It does one's heart good to see such skill applied to such lovely subjects! I really like the choice of colours in this painting, and the general... well... pretty much everything, I guess. The story that went with it gave it an extra depth, as if there wasn't a story told already just by looking at the painting!
The little pet dragon doesn't look out of place in the slightest, but rather seems perfectly natural and as if such things could happen to be in any portrait, no matter when painted. I'm happy you share your art with the world, it's such a delight to partake of!
