18 by 18 acrylic on wood panel.
I have struggled a bit with this piece and as things would have it…. this is actually the second painting, I started another one, on canvas….then realized my Koi were red and they were supposed to be brown and yellow or gold. I was painting this painting for a possible commission and as part of a series. Anyway, because my painting style is intuitive, I have to sometimes remind myself of certain aspects I wanted to include in a piece. Otherwise I’ll just let it happen and I’ll forget what I’m supposed to be painting. Usually, I just reach for what ever color I feel the piece needs at the moment. So you can see both paintings, I’ll put the other painting up later tonight.
