"Dragon" is a rich and dark piece. This chiaroscuro old master style painting was created to capture the essence and emotion of the model, who wears a traditional QiPao dress. The red is auspicious in many Eastern cultures. K.L. Britton wanted something that grabbed the viewer, and let them contemplate what passions were behind the sitter in the painting. The drama and mystery are captured by visible strokes on the smooth panel.
