"Dragon" Photo Reference

We will be adding a Flaming Pearl

In the Chinese culture, the dragon represents good luck, strength, power, and health.  The (flaming) pearl is a symbol of wisdom, spiritual energy and power. The dragon is chasing the flaming pearl. It's chasing wisdom and power in the New Years parade. The dragon is also known to drive away evil spirits and ushers in good luck and blessings for families. There are many runners for the legs of the long dragon body.   Many Asian or Chinese families want to have their marriage, offspring or any personal decisions made during the year of the dragon because dragon years represent good luck and health.

After each class, I load an image of what I painted into Dropbox for your reference, so you can clearly see what I've completed.
When you're done painting your lesson, take a picture and send it to me so I can load in into Dropbox, and at the next zoom class we can work together with a critique on how to progress.
