More Sketches of Koi Fish: Please Vote for which to paint! & Some Progress on my Sunflower...

Edit:  It was a tie between 1 and 4, both here and on my facebook page...  This week, I will try to paint number 4 between now and Tuesday next.  Thank very much for your input!



These are four of my koi fish themed sketches of the week.  Of the six pages of sketches I did, these are the ones Alex liked the best.  I would like to paint one of them this week.  If you'd like to vote on which one, just leave a comment as to which you'd prefer and I'll tally the votes on Tuesday at around four, adding up the votes of my blog and facebook page together.  In the event of a tie, or no votes, I'll just draw one out of a hat.  I might do this weekly with different sketches.  I also may use the sketches and paintings based on the sketches posted in other art at different times.  This painting will be a small 5"x7", with some cropping to fit the format, that I will try to complete between Tuesday and the Tuesday next...

Here is a work in progress view of the sunflower painting that was voted for last week.  I am hoping to have it finished by Tuesday.

Number 1, 2 and 4. It is difficult to choose one:) The sunflower is beautifully evolving.

I like number 2. My dad loved koi and we had a pond full of koi fish for years in our garden at home when I grew up. They are surprisingly tame fish and so colourful.

Your sunflower is looking lovely. Happy SS
