It’s fun to change your point of view sometimes, like looking down on fish instead of across at them.
1. Students started with drawing the fish body on the right, then the one on the left.
2. Tails and eyes were added.
3. Fins were added on the sides, along with some curvy weeds.
4. All pencil lines were traced with crayon. Any spots on the fish were colored in, as well as the inside of the leaves. Lines for bubbles were drawn with a white crayon.
5. Students painted the fish with Orange liquid watercolor paint, and the background with Turquoise blue. I love the Dick Blick brand, but there’s probably lots of good ones out there.
