Hey everyone, Happy Sunday to you!
Hope you have had a nice weekend, and thanks for stopping by. Wrapping up a fun one today!
This week's session is Part 2 of 2 for St. George (who is actually closer to Robin Hood in my version) & The Dragon (who is more like a hill in my version.) -From last week, here is a recap about where this painting came from, for those who missed part 1:
'This piece was inspired by the story of St. George & the Dragon.' The story is kind of an amalgam of older earth religions appropriated by Christianity, and a legend that propagated itself all over the Byzantine world around the 12th century AD. I was drawn to the idea that the dragon was a metaphor for the Tree of Life, and that the Dragon was at war with humanity, requiring sacrifices. (So St. George heroically has to go slay the dragon.)'
Enjoy you guys!

This one was a lot of fun to revisit and to complete; I hope you enjoyed my process and learned something about painting in the bargain! If you enjoy these videos, please consider supporting me on my Patreon site HERE.
