This was created in Procreate using a photo that became a happy mistake. I accidentally snapped an image of a glass table outside on a bright, sunny day and it is the basis for the shapes seen here. I added more color and textures using Procreate’s numerous brushes. The two largest white dots down near the bottom were existing in the photo. I thought it resembled divers going down into a cave. I was influenced by the film “Dave Not Coming Back,” which is about a cave diver, Dave Shaw, who was going to try and retrieve another diver (Deon Dreyer) who had been submerged for ten years prior. I had followed Dave’s story since he embarked on the task. Sadly, Dave perished while he was attempting the rescue in 2005.
