Koi

There is more that could be done to this painting, like putting in the hint of scales or darkening the side of the larger koi to create more modeling.  I think I'm going let it sit for awhile then decide what more needs to be done, if anything.  Hope you enjoy it!

There's something about coming back to a painting with fresh eyes. It looks great!

From someone else's eyes: I like the abstract quality of this painting. I might darken the area where the tail is bent--let the water pass through that area...you start putting in suggestions of scales--fish details--the painting becomes realistic--more about fish than movement.
