Hello fellow art lovers,
Today we’re drawing this fish mosaic together.
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.
