29 Faces in September; Young Girl and Dragon

This is a detail from a drawing I did of Imaginary Daughter on her twelfth birthday. It was a birthday treat to beat all birthday treats; a day training dragons. Deep in a forest on the Scottish Borders we watched on as our daughter was taught how to handle these magnificent creatures. But it was with this particular baby dragon that she built up a very strong bond during the course of the day. We were not allowed to take photos, but I was given permission to sketch. This watercolour pencil drawing is the result of those sketches.

Imaginary Daughter and the baby dragon are two more faces in the 29 Faces in September challenge.


Fact or fiction?

You decide.

  1. She’s real and beautiful Ziggy, I believe she lives in the land of dragons and fairies where all are friends of the elves.
    Turns out she’s a winter baby with her thick lashes and rosy pink cheeks…or maybe autumn. Mine’s a summer baby just like me I believe. Have they met yet, the two, our imaginary children? 🙂
