Recycled brown paper really adds a different feel to a piece. It's not quite as stark as white paper and that can add a real nice effect. When we got home, tired but happy from the beach, I was pretty thrilled that I'd managed to finish the sketch amidst the family fun and chaos. Although I've posted the warmer version of this as the main image on this page (due to popular demand), this photo is much closer to what the actual sketch looks like. On computers, nothing is ever as accurate as seeing it in person but this is pretty darned close. If you're ordering a print and you prefer this 'cooler look', please put it in the notes section when you process your order. If you're ordering the Original, then this picture is a more accurate image of how your artwork will look.
