Deepen the colors and patterns of the drawing by building all up the previous colors. Use Black to create the illusion of ripples and waves using pencil strokes that mimic the movement of water. In the distance, closer to the horizon line, the lines are straighter across and close together. As the waves get closer to the foreground, the patterns become more arched and pronounced. Go back and forth with the pencil lines to help create the patterns of water. Reapply the lighter colors of Canary Yellow and Orange until you are happy with the way it looks.
In the outer edges, of the drawing add some Celadon Green to the water to represent the reflection of the blue sky tint.
Deepen the color of the sand with more Orange and Tuscan Red. With White, fill in the sun and soften its outer edges. Add a touch of White into the brightest highlight areas of the water.
