Living In Harmony ~ Soft pastels by ArtBYbeverly Living In Harmony ~ Soft pastels by ArtBYbeverly
STAMP critism welcomed by Lennylein

Living In Harmony ~ Koi Friends


This painting was so much fun, and since it's my first ever attempt at Koi or any other fish :rofl:, and considering that, I don't think they turned out too badly, what do you think? Two of the fish are Koi; the Kohaku (red on white) and the Bekko (black on white)...I'm not sure what the other one is though.

I would like to thank Ingeline :iconingeline-art: for the wonderful reference photo, and her permission to use it for this painting.
This is the original photo koi carps floriade 19 by ingeline-art


Photo Ref: Ingeline (above)
Surface: Art Spectrum Colorfix sanded: shell
Materials: Pastel pencils, hard pastel and soft pastels
Size: A3 or 10"x 17" inches approx.

You did a wonderful job on these fish!  The scales and shadows and just enough ripples to show they are underwater, but not take away from their beautiful patterns.  I Love it!

I know you're so right, I love Koi fish...we were in Hawaii last year, and the shopping mall that we went to had some huge Koi and I just could have sat there all day watching them :lol: :D  Thank you so much for your lovely comment! :hug:
