Koi 3, Twinrocker watercolor paper, 15" x 22". The top photo has been desaturated because the colors in the original photo were too intense. This still isn't exactly right as the colors in the orange and white koi are really nice.
This painting has been quite a challenge. I still haven't added any scales. The orangy-red fish beneath the red/white koi was originally more of an alizarin crimson color and had more white showing but I didn't like it at all. So I added omitted most of the white and added orange into it.
