Koi Fish Painting

Koi fish paintingThis Koi fish painting project has been one of my most popular pins on Pinterest since it went up a couple of years ago. Here it is again for those that missed it the first time around.

• Watercolor paper
• Crayons
• Liquid watercolor

1. Students start with drawing the tear drop fish shape on the right, then the one on the left.
2. Tails and eyes are added.
3. Fins are drawn on the sides, along with some curvy weeds.
4. All pencil lines are traced with crayon. Any spots on the fish are colored in, as well as the inside of the leaves. Lines for bubbles are drawn with a white crayon.
5. Students paint the fish with Orange liquid watercolor paint, and the background with Turquoise blue. I use the Dick Blick brand, if you want to get the same color results as my sample.

    Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on sites I
    stumbleupon everyday. It’s always helpful to read content from other authors and use something from their sites.

    Take care of Rosemary Camozzi. She’ll be with you on the June 10 trip. She’s an awesome journalist, writer and researcher, and a really good soul.
