Stillman & Birn 5.5x8.5" hardbound sketchbook
Golden Black Gesso
Golden Interference Fluid Acrylics
Sakura Gelly Roll pens
This sketch was done on another spread with a background prepared in the studio in advance. The sketch itself was done on location at the Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk, CT. The gouache stood out pretty well against the black and iridescent surface, and the metallic Gelly Roll pens were the perfect defining touch for these eerie creatures of the deep!
