Water and Reflections

Water, water, everywhere—it's easier than you think. Bodies of water need to sit flat, which means eye level and an elliptical curve in the bank or shoreline that works like the edge of a big dish out there in the landscape. Some things to consider as you draw water:

Think about eye level and making the water lay flat like a dish in space, then add light and flickering texture.

Reflections are fun, just see them and draw them like the objects themselves. Think about pattern on a surface you've already drawn—it could generate an entirely different drawing.

Capturing reflections on water can add interest and detail to your drawing.
