Koi Sketch

This sketch is based on a photo taken by Intrigued from the Wet Canvas Reference Image Library (RIL).  I appreciate the use of the wide array of photos found in the RIL all contributed by the members and are copyright free for use. 

Our third month of the YOP (year of painting) is coming up the 20th and the subject is koi so I decided to sketch a couple to get in the flow of things.  I love the grace and movement of the fins and tails plus the variety of beautiful color found on koi.

Good luck with your koi, Ann.

Has a nice flow to it already Ann, I don't recall you doing a full shadowed pencil drawing of koi before, have you?
