The materials needed to draw your shell 🐚

The pencil: Your Artistic Surfboard

The pencil is like your surfboard, it takes you where you want to go. To draw a seashell simply, I recommend a 2B or even 4B pencil for a depth deeper than the Pacific Ocean. The flexibility of these pencils is ideal for capturing the subtle details of your seashell, from the largest grains of sand to the smallest lines of your precious find.

The Paper: Your White Wave

Next, you'll need your white wave: paper . A thick drawing paper is ideal, a bit like a good sturdy wave. This is your playground to launch your bold and soft strokes that will form this magnificent seashell. The grain of the paper must be fine enough to allow detailed drawing, while being strong enough to withstand the effects of the eraser and the numerous strokes of the pencil. So ride the right wave !

The Eraser: Your Marine Current

The rubber is your sea current which allows you to correct your course if you slip on a wave. Even sand drawing pros make mistakes sometimes, so don't be afraid to make them. A good quality eraser will erase mistakes without tearing your beautiful white wave.

The Pencil Sharpener: Your Tropical Wind

The last essential element is the pencil sharpener , your tropical wind that sharpens your artistic surfboard. You want a sharp pencil to capture the details of your seashell, so make sure you have a pencil sharpener nearby.

Now that you have your equipment , like a surfer with his board, his wax and his swimsuit , you are ready to face the sea of ​​art and easily draw a shell. So, hold on to your pencil, take a deep breath , and dive into the deep blue of creativity with Mer aux Trésors. See you soon, ocean artist!

Have fun drawing shells with your board: step by step 🐚

You know, even though you spend your time tearing up waves, there are times when you just want to relax. What's better than putting down on paper that little shell you found after your last wipeout ?

Step 2: Curves More Undulating than a Perfect Wave

Now add wavy lines inside the semicircle. It's a bit like drawing the trace you leave in the water when you carve. Have you ever seen a smooth seashell? Me neither. This is why these curves are important. It gives texture to your shell, like salt in your hair after a good session.

Step 3: Your Masterpiece Takes Shape

We're almost there, dude ! It's time to add details. You know, those little lines that make your shell look like a real one, and not like a failed pancake. Draw thinner lines inside the curves to give that impression of depth. It's like when you dig a hole to hide your stuff on the beach, but more artistic.

Step 4: Shinier Finishes than a New Board

Ride the Drawing Waves: Tips for Drawing Like a Pro! 🐚

Preparation: Warm Up Before the Big Plunge

Oh yeah, art is like surfing, man. You need to warm up before going head first. Before you start drawing, you should do some quick drawing exercises. Draw lines, circles , spirals – whatever makes you tick. It warms the wrist, a bit like when you do tricks with your board.

Tip #1: Take a Step Back, Even if It's Not a Big Wave

When you surf, you don't focus on every drop of water, right? You see the wave as a whole. Same for drawing. Take a step back , observe all of your work. This will prevent you from getting lost in the details like a tourist in the middle of the ocean.

Tip #2: Test the Waters with a Preliminary Sketch

Before diving headlong into drawing, make a preliminary sketch . Like when you test the water before jumping in. It's your draft, your rough, your sketch, in short, it's your plan before the action. The important thing is not to stress. It's like a draft of a ride, man!

Tip #3: Work your Shadows like a Surfer in the Rising Sun

Shadows are what give depth to your drawing, a bit like waves give dimension to the ocean . It's not a flat line on a sheet, man, it's a 3D world. Pay attention to the light source, and let your drawing make its own wrinkle.

Tip #4: Be Patient, Like Waiting for the Perfect Wave

Patience is the key, dude. Drawing is not a race. Take your time to observe , to sketch, to color... It's a bit like waiting for the perfect wave. Sometimes you have to wait, but when it happens... Woah, it's magic!

That's it, you're ready to surf the White Sheets!

Now you're ready to ride the drawing wave! Each tip is a tool, like wax for your board. Don't forget: the most important thing is to enjoy the ride . Whether you draw a seagull or a beer bottle, the important thing is the journey, not the destination. So take your pencil and go, surf artist!
