Two baby dragons sleeping in a nest

A Nest for Two

The weather is still warm enough here to spend a warm afternoon at the lake but the signs of fall are appearing quickly. The geese fly noisily overhead while the peppers and the beans are ripening quickly. The squirrels and birds are fattening up and building their nests for winter. Something, I’m sure, the dragons of Southern Michigan would be doing too.

This drawing came together really quickly. In fact, I drew it completely from reference without any prior sketching. It’s mainly a color study with some illustrative elements thrown in. I didn’t try to do anything complicated like perspective or lighting or even movement. Nonetheless, I’m pretty happy with it.
