2. Draw another, larger curved line connected to the first. This forms the second wave.
Today Im going to teach you how to draw a simple wave. All you need is a piece of paper, a pen or pencil, and some colored pencils (optional).
I love it! I can paint a wave but drawing it is more difficult! Thanks.
Waves are an intrinsic part of any trip to the beach. Many people find the sound of crashing waves to be soothing, and they may wash delicate seashells ashore. In addition to their beauty, waves are sought after as a component of some water sports, such as surfing and wind sailing.
First, draw the crest of the wave; one line with a dip in it. Your wave can crash to the left (opposite of the one here) or into the middle (just draw the line with a dip in the middle).
6. Draw the whitecap on the remaining wave using a curved line. Complete the largest wave by drawing a curved line from its crest to the wave below it.
I really liked your wave. I’ve never been able to draw one before 🙂
Waves result from the wind blowing across the surface of an ocean, sea, or lake. These waves, called wind waves, whip up the water, first into ripples. These ripples can grown to become hundreds of feet (tens of meters) high. Groups of waves traveling in the same direction are called swells. Unusually large wind-generated waves are known as rogue waves.
In each step, you will see a detailed illustration in addition to explanatory text. Take special note of the blue lines in each picture; these indicate new lines to be added to your drawing. When finished, you may wish to color your waves using colored pencils, crayons, markers, or paints.
7. Draw another wave in the foreground. Use a long, curved line for its top and a squiggly line for the whitecap.
9. Draw more wavy lines in the foreground. In the background, draw choppy water by allowing short, curved lines to come to a point.
Next draw the “C” shaped lines under one side of the crest to make the face of the wave curve.
Now draw the top of the wave folding over by drawing a simple curved line.
Then draw the white wash and foam crushing down on the water.
Would you like to draw an ocean full of waves? Doing so is simple with the help of this easy, step-by-step drawing tutorial. You will need only a pencil and a sheet of paper.
Waves can also be caused by earthquakes beneath the seafloor. Very large and destructive waves of this sort are called tidal waves or tsunamis. This type of wave can also originate with a falling meteorite or on underwater explosion.

1. Begin by drawing a curved line. This forms the crest of the first wave.

8. Add the detail of turbulence to the water. Draw wavy, curved lines between the waves.
4. Every wave has a frothy portion at the top, often called a whitecap. Draw the whitecap of the central wave using a wavy, curved line.
5. Draw a whitecap on the small wave using a wavy, curved line.
