Koi in a Lily Pond VII | Watercolor Painting

Original Watercolor Painting; I painted this inspired by the koi fish at a botanical garden. Painted with Winsor & Newton permanent professional watercolor paints for a rich color that lasts for generations. Only three primary colors were used to mix all the hues in this painting. Three colorful koi fish swim gracefully in a pond full of white water lilies. Loose wet washes make the water seem to swirl!
