How to draw a cartoon beach
In this tutorial, you will learn to draw a nice cartoon beach with beautiful sand and clean water! Drawing a beach is not a very difficult task to achieved!
You just need to sketch water, sand and a couple of accessories like a palm tree or an umbrella! Still, let's see how you could draw a nice beach with some basic lighting and reflection effects!
Sketch a large rectangle to create the sand and the water. Add a line (shown in green in the picture above) to separate the water from the sand.
Next, add the umbrella and the tree. For the umbrella, a simple circle will do. For the tree, just draw a long and thin rectangle for the trunk and a circle for the leaves.
Continue working on your image by adding some details on the umbrella. When you are finished, draw a small circle for the sun and an oval shape for the cloud.
Refine the outline of the tree and sketch some leaves. You can also work on the outline of the cloud. Finally, you can add some shadows (shown in green in the illustration above) under the umbrella and below the palm tree.
Just add some colors and you are done!
If you wish to go a little further, you can add some cool effects to your artwork. For instance, the water that is touching the sand can be colored in white. You can also add some reflections on the water from various elements (like the sun and the cloud).
Finally, why not add various tones of brown on your sand! Like you can see, this is not a very difficult tutorial! I hope you had fun drawing this simple and colorful beach!
