Illustration Friday - Dip (My new Koi fish painting)
Hi everyone, well I finished my painting just in time for Illustration Friday. When I saw the word I thought this painting fit right in. My beautiful Koi fish dips and dives in and out of the water.
This is a mixed media piece on canvas, I sketched the fish out then stuck it onto the canvas. Then I glued tissue paper down for the back ground and painted over everything. The flowers were some pretty glittery stickers that I found in a shop and I think they balance the koi fish well. I'm very happy with how this turned out and will be listing it in my etsy shop. I also think it'll make a good pendant too, so watch this space!
