Painting #19 Koi - Mixed Media
While I was looking through my Maui photos for the Angel Trumpet Bloom I saw one of these Koi at the same park so I decided to paint them.
I did the first one in the sketchbook I took with me to Maui (a Moleskine!) and really kind of ruined it so I did it again on 140# WC paper.
This time I did the fish in colored pencil and washed watercolor over the top and love the washy look about it.
I have been looking through my photos and other pictures that I have saved to paint 'someday' and 'someday' has finally come with this challenge. Now I need to live to be 100 to paint all that I have saved! lol
