Happy Birthday Beach Drawing
12 STEPS
Trace your sketch ... thick strokes for shadows and thin or broken strokes for highlights.
1
Add Happy Birthday calligraphy or lettering.
2
Let it dry completely!! Some inks take longer to dry before you can add water on top of them.
3
Paint the sand. While it's still wet, add a darker brown to make a shadow under the umbrella.
4
Paint the ocean. Use a lighter blue first. Then tap in a darker blue.
5
If your blue leaks more than you want, use a paper towel to blot it.
6
Use a pale blue to brush the sky. Leave white patches to give the appearance of clouds.
7
Paint plain water on the man. Blot some of the water for less paint spread. Tap red into the water.
8
Paint the shorts and book. Use whatever colors you like.
9
Time to paint the umbrella! Here I started with orange and tapped in yellow.
10
Let it dry completely before removing the tape.

Now, you have funny card to send to that special beach-lover in your life. Happy sunning!
