This second Dragon drawing is one of a series of Ink on brown paper drawings of a beautiful Temple in San Chong City, New Taipei City, Taiwan. Taiwan has many different sized and shaped Temples and they always amaze me with their beautiful shapes and colours. The skill involved in making these temples is incredible. I decided to start making Ink drawings as it is an enjoyable process to slowly build up the shapes and detail of such a complex subject. It took a lot of intense observation to pick out the different details, but I like the way the colourful Temples look in Black Ink. As I was drawing my other pictures I decided that I wanted to focus in on some of the incredible details that I could see. I also love how the shapes create great light and dark areas helping to define the different shapes and figures the more I looked at it. This is one of a pair of dragons that can be found at the front of the roof of the Temple.
