Koi Pond 11
26"x40" watercolor

I painted this oversized watercolor on 260lb paper and it quickly became one of my favorites.  The size alone was impressive... small by canvas painter's standards, but large for those of us who work on paper.  I began this with the loose background wash, painted quick with both transparent and opaque watercolor. Then I "lifted" out the shapes of the koi and goldfish... placing them where the painting seemed to want them. Though the original is sold, I do have limited edition giclee prints available.
