Here’s what the artist had to say about this artwork:
After painting numerous landscapes and wildlife of the real world, I wanted to change things up and create a world of my own. I knew I wanted to include a dragon, but scaling him relative to the horse and rider was very challenging. I also wanted to include a princess with the “knight” but ended up having to take her out because the piece was getting too complicated. My favorite part was definitely adding the fire to the dragon and the light effects to the hero. In the future I would like to return to this “world” and create a story line to go with this painting!
