22 Easy Beach and Seascape (Summer) Drawing Ideas

It’s almost the end of summer time as I write this blog post.

I hope you are all having or had an amazing summer (depending on when you read this blog post).

I have always thought about creating a blog post dedicated to beach and seascape drawing ideas, so I figured now was the time to do so!

I’ve included a lot of different subjects to draw, such as the sunset, waves, sea animals, and boats to name a few.

I hope you find a drawing that resonates with you… One that inspires you to draw today.

Drawing Tips: I recommend starting off your drawing with a pencil sketch. Once you are satisfied with your sketch, go over the lines with an ink pen. When the ink dries, erase the pencil sketch underneath to reveal your final drawing!

Please feel free to follow the drawing tips or draw whatever way you like!

The most important thing is that you have fun creating art.

So relax! Let all your worries and stress melt away for these next few minutes or hour or so. Draw away!
