I had an image in my head of a Chinese dragon twisted into a Celtic knot. When I actually sketched the idea, I decided to loosen the knot and make it look more natural, but I still enjoyed painting all those twisted loops of tail. I planned to use a limited color palette (because I’d run out of red acrylic, but I had plenty of yellow and blue), but I thought the picture needed a little something more, so I ended up adding the reddish browns later once I’d bought more paint.
