|How do you draw a picture of the sea? Here are some tips to help you create the perfect seascape.|
You will need:
|To create a calm sea, first take the picture that you want to put the sea into.|
A calm sea is very flat, and there are no waves at all.
But that doesnít mean thereís no drawing to do - because to show that the sea is calm, itís a case of drawing or painting the reflections of everything around the water.
|Start by painting the reflections of the headland.|
Remember that the reflections are upside down and come towards you.
Paint very simple squiggles to show the reflection - but donít go too squiggly, because it wonít look very calm then!
|Itís really a case of just copying everything upside down, but not to make it very clear.|
And there you have it - a calm sea.
|So - what about an angry sea?|
Well, thereíll be lots of crashing waves. Donít do waves that go up and down... just do one side of the wave, the wave that goes up, like this.
|Itís an angry sea, so get angry as you draw it! |
Another good tip is to get smaller and smaller as you go into the distance.
Donít worry about having a straight horizon, because itís not going to be straight if thereís a crashing sea!
You should end up with something like this.
|Then, do the other side of the wave, the bit that goes down, in a lighter blue or a white. |
Just simply flick downwards.
|For the foam of the sea, use a really dry brush and thick white paint.|
Stab or flick the paint.
|And there it is - a rough sea.|
Try it yourself!
