I worked on this mini scene the last 2 evenings. The first evening I worked on the sky and water. I used a BG000 for the coloring in the sky and a colorless blender to lighten the sky close to the horizon. The water was a little easier. I began with a base coat of B21 then added B24 and B37 for the deepest color. I did need to wash out some of the color at the shore line with a blender. A white gel pen was used to give the waves a little bubbly foam.
The second evening I worked on the beach and other images. I'm not terribly happy with how my sand colors look... I wish I had some lighter 'sandy' colors. I used E30 and E53 which seemed the right colors to me, just too dark. What color copic do you use for sand? I did try washing out some color with the blender. I added a little Y21 here and there to give the sand some warmth. Outside of the sand, I'm pretty happy with the end result.
