100 Watercolors #36 - Precious Treasure

For this week's theme, I decided to rework an image that I used a while back on a promotional postcard.  I decided to make the dragon a bit smaller so that I could place more emphasis on the pile of books, which in this case are the "precious treasure."

I feel like something clicked with my process on this painting.  I feel like I have a better grasp on how to attack different sized areas and I'm getting better at mixing colors.  I don't have everything figured out, but I definitely feel like I am improving.  Luckily, I still have another 64 of these to go, so hopefully by the end of the project I'll really know what I'm doing!
