The Dragon on your Windowsill

The dragons of the town alight on windowsills, looking for a handout. They might look fierce, but all they really want from you are some leftovers. The larger types participate in the defense of the town if someone is so rude as to invade it. The windowsill dragon species is no bigger than a dog. It is best to keep on friendly terms with them. 

This piece was drawn in my "storybook style" and even though I hadn't been through my self-study of "drawing dragons" my creatures weren't too bad. The architecture is from the rooftops of a French country village. 

Ink and watercolor on illustration board, 8 1/2" x 9 1/2", October 1997.
