I've been wanting to draw this for a while. When i was on holiday years ago I had a drawing travel journal. The picture (top right) was drawn after a snorkel in a coral reef (I know! It was a dream come true) I remember the coral was a lovely pink and there was a bright orange fish hiding within it. I thought the doodle was of a badly drawn clown fish and that's what I started to do a full colour version of. As it turned out it was a quite accurate sketch of a skunk clown fish (picture below left) But I stuck to the regular clown fish every one knows and lovely thanks to Finding Nemo.
