|Adding the base colour|
The key to making a calm waterfront is to keep all your lines horizontal! This makes the water appear flat and smooth. I started with the reflection of the colours from the sunset. To do this make small dashes of colour where the colour would reflect. The different coloured dashes can kinda overlap in area and leave a little bit of space to add some blue dashes as well.
|Dashes in the water... Keep them HORIZONTAL!|
So we add water and smooth the colours from the middle out to the sides. This will blend the colours and make the colour in the blue seem reflective and soft. I then added blue to the edges to finish off the base colouring.

So have fun creating!
