With summer comes wonderful clear blue skies! Begin with a layer of ultra- marine blue and a layer of light blue paint below it.
Keep adding white paint to the light blue as you move downwards in your Watercolor sketchbook and blend to get a gradient.
Drawing clouds is easy- peasy. Dip your round brush in white paint and draw with small, random strokes on your Watercolor sketchbook 300gsm.
Paste washi tape at the centre of the sketchpad to divide the colours between the sky and the sea.
Paint a thin layer of ultra-marine blue at top, which will add depth to your painting, creating an illusion that the sea extends far beyond.
Next paint with a layer of light blue. Blend it with white to get a gradient on your Watercolor sketchbook for beginners.
Highlight this layer by making small patterns with different shades of blue to show waves and the contrasts in the sea.
Dab white paint with your paint brush over the last light blue layer to get a minute texture.
To paint the sun kissed shore, mix white paint with a little cadmium yellow to get a creamy colour.
Use a portion of it at the bottom of the sketchbook and blend it with off white paint.
Draw outlines of palm trees with light blue paint as the sun will reflect the colour of the sea.
Draw the base of the trees with off white paint and then highlight with brown for a realistic effect.
Draw the leaves with dark green colour and highlight parts of it with light green.
