Then in the foreground we added some rocks and texture. The feel was to be coast/beach but the location was unimportant. Only a 2.5 hour session so there was a lot to cover. I was particularly impressed with the rocks they created, allowing the colours (we only used 4 or 5) to shine through without churning into mud. The textural effects they created were great.
One of the uploaded pics is a photo of the beach at Burnie. We took a stroll there to absorb the atmosphere and set the mind onto beach mode (though this photo was taken the week before when there was a bit more drama in the sky).
