Ferries Passing, Balmoral

Ferries Passing, Balmoral

Ferries Passing, Balmoral

Well this is different. For me anyway.

By using a sketch as the reference, which I’d done on location at Balmoral Beach, I decided to block it in using my acrylics straight onto 300gsm Arches Aquarelle.

Interesting how you get a slightly illustrative look, because it’s already that way in the sketch.

Also has a pastel look, with the soft edges.

I’m thinking of doing another in this technique to see if I like it, and if I can do it again with another sketch.

Actually, the ferries do pass right there in front of Balmoral Beach. One coming from Manly, and the other going to.
