Art: Payne’s Grey Dragon

Blue grey ink strokes depicting a large dragon in front of a small girl with arm raised. I wrote underneath a birthday greeting in French for my 16 year-old son.

For my son’s 16th birthday, I painted a dragon. Adrien wanted me to paint some version of Toothless and Light Fury from the movie series “How to train your dragon”. I had intended to paint them in gouache. But in the meantime I discovered the Sennelier Payne’s Grey ink brushpen.

This is after a digital artwork sketch by William Morris-Julien who is creative director in the video games industry.

He liked it well enough.
