In honor of the new season of GAME OF THRONES.
Much like the Mother of Dragons this painting rose from the fire too. It was narrowly a complete disaster.
When I’m finished a piece of artwork I usually spray a bit of “Krylon Matte Finish” over the painting. Naturally, I did so here, but, after lightly staying a hazy cloudy coat suddenly appeared over the painting. I thought it would go away after it dried. It didn’t. So, I sprayed a heavier coat; it got worst.
I thought it was unsalvageable. Out of desperation I sprayed some “Krylon Workable Fixatif.” It cleared up much of the haze, but unfortunately, a lot of the color pencil detail has seemed to have melted away.
However, I’m happy I saved as much as I could.
This painting is a real Targaryen, she walked out the flames unburned.
Done on 16x20 illustration board with gesso, graphite, color pencils, and acrylic paint.
