“Based on a shark encounter dive I did with Dr. Forest W. Redding, Jr. last year. I wanted to capture the essence of these wonderful creatures; recreating the warm waters above the reefs where we were. I did a thick build-up of Gesso to give the foreground shark a 3-D look, with textured molding-paste sculpting rough texture of the corals.” -Peter R. Gerbert
