16 by 20 watercolor on canvas
I painted this painting several weeks ago and hated the background, it was too colorful, too busy and didn't really show case the Koi. Like in any play there can only be one star and the Koi have to be the star. Now, the painting is a better painting just because the background isn't competing with the foreground and the colors are cooler providing contrast and pushing the warmer color forward.
