You’ll Need: canvas, acrylic paint (pink, blue, light blue, green, yellow, orange), paint brush

First take the dark blue paint and just sketch the outlines of the boats.


Then just start filling in the sails with different colors and patterns. You can either copy the actual pattern or just do some of your own. On the actual pattern you can see a lot of the boats also have yellow highlights on them so you can add those too.

Then just start adding in the waves. Use different shades of blue and just put in a bunch of squiggly lines.


Once you’ve filled most of the remaining white space with water you’re done and have a beautiful new canvas.


Gamma love,
