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!
