Picture of the Week

Stone Dragon 07:Turquoise Dawn by rachaelm5
"Seventh in an ever-growing series of dragons whose colors are based on precious and semi-precious stones.

Turquoise is another one of my favorite stones - anything from an almost yellowy-greeny-blue to that deep azure-turquoise blue: I wanted to get a bunch of different tones of turquoise into this picture.

I wasn't sure that the gold linework would work originally, but I thought I'd try it to see what would happen. I ended up being quite pleased with the effect. I usually see silver and turquoise jewelry, but I think the gold really sets off the blues and greens as well. :D

Prismacolor pencil, gold paint pen, and Photoshop tweaking."
