Koi Fish Painting Work in Progress & Sketch of Waterlily Fairy Maiden...



Here is a work in progress view of my koi fish that was voted for on Sunday.  At this point I have blocked the background in and I am hoping to have the fish completed by Tuesday...  This week my theme for next week's small painting is horses.

I'm joining in this week with Paint Party Friday.  To see more participants, please visit:


Here is a sketch of the waterlily fairy maiden I have been sketching.  I think I finally have her to the point where I feel ready to move on to the next stage and put her together with her water lily and koi fish!  She'll probably be significantly cropped, I like to focus on faces, but I wanted to try and get her pose looking right so that I have the option to include more of her if I want to.

I am hoping to have a couple more horses as options for this week's vote on Sunday sketched by tomorrow.

I really love your art. The first one the background is rich. The fairy girl I know will be more beautiful when she is finished.
