Draw This Easy Fish Mosaic Drawing With Me

For this drawing tutorial, all you need is paper, a pencil, and an eraser.

You’ll be able to shade in the fish sections with your pencil, pen, colored pencils, or watercolor paint.

The point of this lesson is that YOU draw along with me so that we both have a nice drawing to hang on our wall at the end of this lesson.

If you don’t have your pencil and paper ready yet, now is the time to get them.

Okay,  let’s get started.

You can follow the printed instructions on this page or you can watch the YouTube video of this drawing lesson by clicking on this picture:


Draw the outside shape of the fish. Then draw in the upper and lower fins. Leave a space between the fins and the fish. I’ll explain in a minute.

Now draw in the eyes, gills, and side fin.

Draw a white strip around your fin. This white strip is like the grout between mosaic tiles. We don’t put any color into these strips.

Now put on the bands in front of the tail fin – 4 lines.

And then the strips in the tail fin. Now you’ve made 5 mosaic sections in the tail fin that you’ll color in later.

Now we’ll put the mosaic sections in the rest of the fish’s body. Start around the eyes. The trick is to remember to draw the white strips. This creates the mosaic sections.

You do NOT have to draw your sections to look like mine. Just make some sections that you will color in later.

It’s up to you if you want to fill in the mosaic spaces with your pencil, a pen, colored pencils, markers, or watercolor paints.

Just be sure to keep the white stripes blank.

I used colored pencils for this mosaic drawing.

I suggest you frame your mosaic drawing. See how the frame fits and then add your signature where it will plainly show.

Does Music Always Help Your Creativity?

Header for SkillfulArtists.com posts

Is music a distraction when you are creating? It could be.

What about listening to podcasts or YouTube while painting, sculpting, or whatever. These could definitely be distractions.

And why is that bad? We will tell you…


In the excellent book, “The War of Art” by Steven Preston, an important point for artists and other creative people is mentioned in the introduction:

“When we sit down each day to do our work, power concentrates around us… We become like a magnetized rod that attracts iron filings. Ideas come. Insights accrete [multiply and attach to us] … Stunning ideas arrive as if from nowhere.”

This may not be true every day, but it does happen sometimes. (In fact, it happened to me today as I was working on a painting.)

I used to catch up on the news, watch murder mysteries or play music in my studio while I was painting. No more. I stopped doing that a while back when I was feeling frustrated and my progress was plateauing.

Then I decided to simply concentrate on my work. I stopped all distractions, even restful music. Decided to pay more attention to the paints, the textures, and the GOALS of what I was working on.

I discovered I not only made progress but I enjoyed the PROCESS of painting more.

Then when I read the above passage in Pressfield’s “The Art of War,” I realized what had happened. I created an environment where inspiration could penetrate my mind. Nothing was drowning out ideas. If an idea was coming to mind, nothing overpowered it. It was free to break through with nothing getting in the way.

So if you are experiencing frustration in your creative work and you are not enjoying the process as you used to, I recommend you try creating the quietest environment you possibly can.

Then listen to the cosmos. Is Inspiration trying to whisper something to you? Is a seed of an idea growing in your thoughts?


Let it enter. Rest in it. Play with it.

Let the still small voice of Creativity speak amazing things to you.
