A Little Koi by Mary Deaville in Pebeo Mixed Media
Inspired by the fish in Newent lake and by the Pebeo Mixed Media; Fantasy Prisme and Moon, this painting was created from the bottom up. The fish were painted in full first and have irridescent appearance, as the light hits the painting the scales of the fish shimmer and change colour, as in real life. Then the water was painted on top, showing reflections of blue sky and the Koi fish coming to the surface, waiting for their next meal.
I like the painting to come alive on the wall and remind you that it is there so you can fall in love with it all over again. So think about where you will hang it to allow light to hit it at different angles and at different times of the day.
