Leo's Dragon Plaque

Welcome to my little corner, this week I'd like to show you a new plaque I painted for..... guess who?

It started off as one of 5 sketches that I emailed over to the client and this is the one she chose for her baby sons room, the remit was a dragon for a room with the colour scheme in red, white and dark blue and not too babyish so it would 'grow' with him.

A Dragon for Leo



Firstly I pencilled in the chosen design.

Do you recognise what I have mixed my paint on?

Yes, it's the lid from a tub of butter.

Nearly there, not much more to do.

Finished off with the dark blue boarder and a red and blue ribbon for hanging.













This plaque fits in quite well with the countries celebrations this week. The dragon is very English and the colour scheme of Red White & Blue is very British and patriotic for Queen Elizabeth's  Jubilee Celebrations.

Wishing you all a great week end and a brilliant week.
