The process of drawing the sea with watercolor
Compared to my other paintings at the art show I attended this summer, the sea paintings are all sold out. Here on Long Island, many people love the sea, especially because it is surrounded by the sea and has numerous beaches.
I drew a new beach picture today. And I want to share the process in a moment.
Just as the shape and atmosphere of the sea change color every moment, the artists' methods of expressing the sea are also different. All based on the artist's personality, philosophy, skill, speed, etc., each reveals his or her individuality. Therefore, each may have a different way of representing the sea. Here, I would like to show you the sea drawn in my own way for a moment.
First of all, I think most of the parts below will be similar. Attach it to the horizontal part with masking tape. This allows for a more natural processing of the borders.
Then create the gradient using the wet on wet technique. Before the paint dries, express the texture of the wavy part with a flat brush.
Then, I use the ground white of watercolor paint to express waves, small water droplets, and marble.
Below is the finished look.
