The dragons here are based on a Celtic snake design from the Book of Kells, and modified. A small seascape appears at the bottom of the outer band. The outer band is made up of tiny spirals, colored to give the impression of waves or the surf. This was one of my paintings that I did in coloured ink, which is a tedious process of mixing liquid inks and then loading them into cartidges for use in technical pens. However the final effect is really nice and gives such a different effect than the usual "black outlines with collured fills".
