"Feeding Time" pastel painting

9 x 12

I finished this today.  This was a lot of fun.  I challenged myself with attempting the water ripples.  Certain parts of them were highly reflective in the photograph, and many of them were soft and almost invisible.  Next time I will paint fish on a larger surface.  The reflections were hard to do small.

WOW! So wonderful! I love your koi and the color contrast; vivid warm colors and dark blue. Your ripples look very real. Thank you for sharing this beautiful painting.

Wow--those koi certainly look the part!!! Great colors. Painting small has just set this up for you confidance-wise. Sorta like doing a "color-study" When you do this larger, it will be spectacular!!!!
