VSW: Ben Carlin’s “Half-Safe”


Ben Carlin’s Amphibious “Boat” was half land vehicle, half boat,
aptly called the “Half Safe”.
I was attracted by the bright yellow color, but the story was thrilling!

This was part of a Virtual Sketchwalk in our FB group around Perth, AU.

I am trying out gouache, and these are very old cheap paints but I wanted to see if I would like the opaque nature of the medium before I buy nice paints.
I’m not sure yet… but intrigued!
I mean, LOOK at that intense yellow!  Wow!
