I painted this in three passes, meaning I did about 75% in one sitting then when in on the second pass and did anothe 15 % by makeing some changes to the fish and their placement. Then I darkened the water and made it have some wave defination, I wanted it to have more movement. Now today the finishing touches and the last 10% I spent a lot of time looking at it and deciding what it needed. I believe now it to be finished. I call it “swirling Koi” because of the water swirling by them.
You can look back and see the first two stages.
