I'm looking to create a vector (ideally) illustration with an abstract sea, much like this (not the dolphins or sun):

Abstract sea

How can I go about this using free tools such as Inkscape?

You can also check the collections on the open clipart for a viable starting point. – dinesh Mar 25 '13 at 21:11

You can start by watching this tutorial on how to create wave-like vector shapes in Inkscape. Then the fill you want are shades of blue gradients that goes from blue to transparent with a stroke around the lighter shades of blue.
