Title: Walkway to the Beach
Post by: linley.plester on April 10, 2018, 02:55:19 AM
Mixed media on paper. Acrylic and coloured pencil.  The background was painted using acrylic  watercolour techniques; experimented with impasto on the walkway; pandanus palms are just ordinary thick acrylic paint. At one stage i nearly chucked it... the pandanus looked awful, but a few strokes later it suddenly came good. Goes to show.... Never Give Up! I'm quite pleased with it. Even my go-to boating and water expert likes it.

 :thankyou: Emma Lee. This scene reminds me of my time in Queensland ( far north Australia) which was one of my happy adventures too.
