Aine & Her Mare

For Bonnie Rose's Lessons for Week 3 of Lifebook we have to unite our inner light and shade represented by Goddesses that we are connecting to.  Ive chosen Aine, the celtic irish goddess (otherwise known as the queen of the fairies).  She is also symbolized with a Red Mare.  Ive also chosen the Greek Goddess Selene and Im going to use a serpentine dragon for her symbolism.  I'm still working out words to connect to them both for the final piece too.  At times this seems a very challenging but an interesting lesson. Ive already watched all of the figure drawing videos and the marbling and hatching technique that Bonnie gave us.
So striking out with my first ever horse, fairy & serpentine dragon drawings, I thought Id share this embryonic stage with you all.

This is my Aine and her red mare and Ive worked on a dragon from Dragoart  Im probably only going to use the head in the final piece.
