Sailboat on a Lake

This sailboat painting gives students a chance to add interest with elements such as the reflection of the sails and blue sky and the tonal greens across the shoreline forest.
1. Draw the boat and sails. Add a horizon line. Make some zig-zag lines for two layers of trees.
2. Trace all the lines with a black permanent marker.
3. Use a white crayon to draw waves and a reflection of the boat.
4. Paint the picture with watercolors. I used the Dick Blick Liquid brand for this sample.
