Watercolor paints are made from either natural pigments found in the earth; clay, minerals, etc., or from synthetic pigments, which have been finely ground down and then held together with a water-soluble based "gum" binder.

Sketch the area that will be filled with water on your canvas before you begin to paint. If the body of water is one that would have several different depths within it (such as a lake or ocean, or a deep river), go ahead and sketch the different depths as well.

Use the shade of light blue and dark blue paint. Play with the colors so that it will looked natural like waves of ocean. I hope your friend is okay now and doing great.

Firstly you paint the paper with a thin coat of a plain watercolor, let it dry and then add colour shade of your choice to have ripple effect.
Here's a tutorial that I used and hopefully will help you to paint natural looking crashing waves -

Clark... What medium are you wanting to do you Dolphin peice in? If Watercolor then the above suggestions are good... you could also incorporate Watercolor pencils as well... they blend well and you can work them with your water colors, as well as use them like a pencil.. if acrylic then similar... there are number of tip videos out there that you use as a resource - a fairly decent ocean tutorial for beginners is.. http://youtu.be/cE9a4MgkcDw
May your world be painted in the Brightest of colors!
