My Girlfriend (ErinAquaheart) is working on a giant project involving painting a large floor as a koi pond. Watching her made me want to try and paint some of my own koi fish. This little series of three paintings is my result. (sorry the pic is a tiny but blurry)



**My Girlfriend posted hers on this thread they are on page 2, make sure to check them out too!**

Those are fantastic! They're very "luminous" - did you use acrylic?

Well, since my wonderful gf has already made an aptly named thread I will just post my version of my koi painting right here!!!! I made a series of three as well...





Mine are much more solid than TechnicolorAquahear ts. I really love the soft colors and nature of these.
