Majestic Coral Reef

Coral Reef 15" x 20"

My love for scuba diving is showing again with this piece. This is was made using soft pastels on Canson rough watercolor paper.  Most people ask me why I did pastels on watercolor paper.  Well, it is for that wonderful rough texture.  The texture comes through in the rendering and adds a dimension you don't get with regular pastel paper.  I will say that it does use up more of your pastels and is more time consuming, but to me it is worth it for the finished effect.
