Unfortunate by emla Unfortunate by emla
Watercolor and Gouache

Where I live in Florida, you often see egrets and herons catching lizards. This unfortunate little dragon has found itself a little lower on the food chain than usual.

((I'm working on a lot of things at once, but I couldn't resist finishing and uploading this image.))

It's interesting; here in Houston there's a bridge where bats roost during the summer. Herons hang out under it and will eat any bats that fall to the ground. This reminded me of that. I guess one could say that dragons are a mix of bat and lizard, so a heron's diet does reflect this painting! I like how happy/proud the egret looks.
