About this drawing

This drawing got its inspiration from an underwater photo taken by Tami Harris. I used the grid method and Strathmore© Toned gray sketch paper medium surface. After working on the Wayland Smithy drawing I wanted to experiment with colored pencils and gray toned paper. Tami's photograph looked like a good subject having a wide range of tones from the bright white on the fish and coral to the very dark blue-black background.
