This painting was so much fun, and since it's my first ever attempt at Koi or any other fish , 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 for the wonderful reference photo, and her permission to use it for this painting. This is the original photo

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 Thank you so much for your lovely comment!
