I painted the flowers and touched up her hair a bit. This piece is almost finished. I watched a surfing movie to get a feel for the wave and changed a few things on it. I’ll post the entire painting in the next day or two. The movie was call the billabong something… opps can’t remember I want to say Dynasty but thats not it.
Perhaps this will be finished tomorrow… lets pray for rain.
I decided this painting needed to change its direction. The kimono in red was fighting with everything in this painting. I changed the reflective light in the face to blue and painted over the red kimono, now I’ll try to put some of it back in but this time it won’t be red.
This is my ad for the American Art collector magazine. I love this painting and will not sell it, it hangs in my entry. One of the reasons I love this painting is because I love the impressionistic way the Koi are painted and also all the interesting colors and shapes that intersect the water.
This is a 16 by 20 and I started it today. It looks a bit more pink that it really is .
This Koi painting is acrylic on wood panel 18 inches by 18 inches, I may make a few changes but I’m not sure just yet, I’ll see how I like it after a few days.
Here is the second pass for this work in progress.
