Watercolor Koi x2


I was trying to explore how bright I could get the colors to be, yet still maintaining their transparency. The blue is mostly ultramarine, a pretty opaque watercolor. It allows the artist to wipe out the paint layer and reveal the white paper underneath. This is how the ripples were painted. 

This painting is from a beautiful photo taken by Jan Russ, with a full permission of the artist.
