Color a goldfish | Paint by nos. | Paintology drawing app

As a child we have always been intrigued and fascinated by the goldfish in a bowl. In actual fact, I won one in a fare and kept in a bowl. I loved watching it swirl around the bowl and picking things from the bottom. Swimming to the surface to get some air.

In this coloring tutorial, we will take the Paint by nos. drawing and color the goldfish with a range of colors, twelve in total. You will be surprised by the number of colors the fish possess and is a great coloring exercise.

Here is the template that you can click on and print for your coloring exercise.

Like all painting try to study the drawing and adopt your own style of painting and drawing.

Try to do the larger patches of color first and don’t worry about the smaller details to match exactly the region. Since you are doing this on the phone, you can make mistakes and use the undo button to redo. You can do this painting as many times as you want as each one is saved on your phone.

The way I would approach this coloring is to do the red (7) and other colors 10, 2, 12, 4. Then I would pay attention to the smaller details that make up the fins with linear strokes, Then I would apply the colors as I look at the reference drawing rather than rely on the tiny details of the numbered region.
