Koi 3 and 6 - Two Works in Progress

Today was  a very busy day with many errands to run and things that had to be completed, but I still wanted to either draw or paint and in the end I did a little of both.

I pulled out some sketches of koi that I had started earlier this year (see posts on 18 and 30 July 2014). I refined the sketches until I was pleased with the drawing.

Koi 3

For the first one I painted the water using a mix of Cobalt blue and French ultramarine blue, then set it aside to dry. The second one the water was painted with Antwerp blue and Cobalt blue.

Koi 6

I will post both of these paintings at a later date once I have completed the koi.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and enjoy the artwork. I hope you will return often.
