Red Dragon

The Dragon…this legendary, mythical being, capable of breathing fire, caught my fantasy at first sight. It is believed that they are telepathic creatures and can “imprint” on humans soon after hatching, thereby bonding telepathically with them. That is exactly what the majestic Saphira did when I first set my eyes on an image of her…It was love at first sight and inspiration galore for the artist in me!
As an attempt to delve further into her psyche, I decided to explore her intrinsic nature…the raging fury within. Soon enough, I realised how similar she is to the temperamental human mind and Lo and behold! My first muse was born!! So the Red Dragon is not just a portrait of Saphira but also a metaphor for the turbulent human mind. I have tried to depict this through a bright palette with warm tones of yellow, orange and red…the varying shades of fiery anger.
