8 X 10 inch oil painting on canvas panel.
$250 (Free shipping in the U.S.)
Because of the rainy days here in California, I’ve been working in the studio a lot more. This was painted from a photo. It was a good lesson in learning when to put down the photo and do what works for the painting itself. In the photograph the reflections were much larger and white. After painting them in I knew it wasn’t working so I scraped them off. It took a several painting sessions for me to work this one out and decide what kind of reflections would work in it. Overall, I’m pleased with this one and look forward to painting more Koi.
