Dragon bark painting

I like to experiment with different materials, so, when I saw bark falling off trees, I decided to take some to paint. I painted this dragon with acrylic paints, and gave it to my cousin as part of his Christmas present last year. Painting bark worked really well, I didn’t expect the colours to be as vibrant as they are, because I thought they’d soak into the bark. It took a while to design this dragon because I needed to keep the curve and organic shape of the bark in mind, but I like how it turned out, and I could see myself cutting this dragon out of paper in the future, and also painting other images on bark.
