River Dragon


The three-clawed water deity emerges from the river to impose his will upon the unsuspecting land dwellers.

Painting Process
David used a variety of acrylics to develop the hot background for the three-clawed water serpent, and then cooled the painting down by using blue and green gouaches to block in the dragon's form. He used dark green-brown enamel to paint the extensive line work and then built the frame with a combination of aged wood and old Balinese boat wood and then stained it to unify the tones, bringing the total measurement to 26 x 14.5

Canvas Prints
The ready-to-hang River Dragon canvas prints are produced with archival ink on museum-grade, gallery-wrapped canvas and extend 1.25 inches off the wall, so there's no need for a frame. There are several sizes available and each limited-edition giclee is signed and numbered out of only 40 Artist Proofs. Please allow up to three weeks for delivery of canvas prints, as they are custom-built at the time the order is placed.
