I like the effect of the ghost ripples.  Your koi are beautiful!

 :thankyou: for posting again

Great job on the fish and lily pads :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

I feel your reflections on the water are not prominent enough. As the water is transparent, the reflections on the water is what adds the depth to show the fish are submerged so if the reflections are not strong enough, the depth is lost

Thanks Nolan! You didn't see my last attempt at reflections. They were awful! Maybe after a few more oil painting classes, when my skill is better, I'll try to add them onto the painting.
Cheers,
Sharon

The Kois stand out so well against the water. With the details which Nolan suggested your painting will be very impressive, Sharon!

Thanks Kathy and Gita! And I'll attempt some reflections in a week or so when my confidence in oils is higher.
Cheers,
Sharon
