Try This - Fish Doodle

Updated July 2009

First, please read my post, "Anybody Can Draw," if you haven't already. And please don't copy my drawing - but do feel free to use it to inspire your own.

To try this, draw a 4x6" rectangle, or use an unruled 4x6" index card. It also works well in a larger size like 8.5 x 11.

Warm up your arm by making circles and loops with your hand above the paper, but without touching it.

Then draw a large oval-like shape with loops inside it. Make the loops different shapes and sizes. If you have room, add some loops outside your main shape (like mine at the lower left).

Add some dots, stripes, and shapes inside your loops. If you have a blank space, you can add another shape, like the flower shape where my fish has his eye. Color, but feel free to leave some white space. Enjoy.

For more drawings to try, click on "try this" just below, or in the menu bar in my blog header, or in the label list on the right.
