After transferring the image...

taken without flash

I transferred the image to Vellum and started laying down the first layer of colored pencil on the boots. In these pictures the boots are just about down. I am working on the colors of the fire hydrant, the helmet, the tools etc. I am working this drawing in a different sequence than I normally approach a drawing. Normally I work on the background first and then the details. Here, as you can see I am working on the details first. The reason.... I have no clue what I want the background to look like. I want to do something with flames and smoke, maybe?? I hope the colors in the details will eventually give me the idea for the background and how to finish the drawing.
