Most Ambitious Project Announcement

It is with both excitement and trepidation that I am announcing my most ambitious project yet. I plan on working on this in between other, shorter drawings, to give myself a little variety. I bought a piece of quality paper 30" wide - the biggest by far I have ever used. I don't remember the height, but I'm thinking of cutting it down to 15-20". This will be a colored pencil drawing. And I'm sure it will take several months.

Do I have your interest piqued? I'm going to attempt an underwater coral reef scene. I've started researching the different types of corals, fish and other plants and animals that live in Australia's Great Barrier Reef. I picked there just so I can localize the sealife.

So far, there's nothing to show except a big empty piece of paper. I'm working on the composition now, and once I get that finalized I'll post it. Stay tuned!

I've been debating getting an aquarium for months: now I won't have to! Wow, I can't wait to see this.

May I ask what kind of paper? Artistico? Stonehenge?

Well, I hope you don't mind a bit of a wait. I'm still working on the sketch.

Paper? Ummmm.... The biggest piece I could find that works well for colored pencil. Stonehenge sounds familiar.
