Koi Pond by Kay Wyne

Koi Pond
24" x 30"
Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
This is my first koi painting...I layered and layered the paint on, and had the gold/orange koi way too light. I was happy with the colors in the white/gray koi, but not the golden ones. I enjoyed the first day on this painting, and struggled with the days following. I know the water in the koi pond needs to be greener, but I don't like painting green very well, so I just went with what I wanted on the water. I hope to get some better reference photographs next trip to the Dallas Arboretum....I am in the studio all day today, hoping that my brushes are kind to me. Thanks for viewing this blog!
