I have been really getting into drawing beautiful and exotic landscapes that can be used for backgrounds, or just as wonderful nature sceneries. Today I will be showing you guys "how to draw a lagoon", step by step. For a while I wondered what a lagoon was, and before I made this tutorial I was still stumped. The idea to make a lesson on drawing a lagoon came after I watched a film called ‘Blue Lagoon’ which is an old eighties flick which starred Brooke Shields when she was sixteen years old. The beautiful escape of how everything looked in the movie took my breath away and because of that I really wanted to recreate something so mesmerizing. So, getting back to that question on what is a lagoon, here is my official answer. A lagoon is a shallow body of water that is closed in by surrounding islands. A lagoon is filled or created by tidal currents that our water in, and out of a shallow area of an island. There are three different types of lagoons; leaky lagoons, restricted lagoons, and chocked lagoons. Trying to break down the differences between all three lagoon types is going to be a little challenging because there is so much to say about them. I can however direct you to a website that can explain in better detail how lagoons are created and the differences between them. Well I hope you have fun with this tutorial, it was awesome and fun to create.
