Koi Pond by the-reluctant-dragon Koi Pond by the-reluctant-dragon
Fish....an idea that's been hanging in the back of my head for some time, finally on paper. Koi carp are so interesting with their splotchy skin and bulbous alien eyes! They were MADE for watercolour! I love traditional Japanese art, and having been to see the Kamisaka Sekka exhibition at AGNSW recently, I've been inspired to move my art more and more in this direction. Clean simplicity, vivid colour, and good design. THIS is my new mantra!

My mantra is "Life is so much better when everything is funny".
Anyway, the colours look pretty nice here! I've been thinking about doing watercolour again but I haven't gotten around to it.
