Begin this painting by taking a white circular paper sheet as the base for the artwork and an angelfish stencil. You can either draw an angelfish and cut it out using scissors to make the stencil or get it directly from the market. Place the angelfish paper stencil over the base on the right side.

Now, using a small circle stamp, make yellow and blue bubbles over the base look like coming out of the mouth of a yellow and blue fish. Make a group of these bubbles above the fish.
