Gita, the fact that the red & white koi is slim & smaller, it does not distract one's eye from the main focal point.
Great  :painting:

Gita.. you asked for comments, and so I dare to suggest that you make the lily leaf in front of the red fish overlap his fin a little bit more. That will push him further back into the painting. It's a gorgeous painting of a lovely subject.Well done!

 :thankyou: for sharing the brush holder idea, Gita. I have a couple of china ones made for Chinese ink painting brushes, but I do find that they take up a lot of room on my too small table. The Geneva design with it's small foot area might be quite useful as long as you're not clumsy and knock it over. Unfortunately I'm noted for my clumsiness. My nick name as a teenager was Ellie, short for Elbows.  :2funny: So this is idea I've stored for the future.

I am happy to hear that you are inspired by the brush holders, Linley. I got one made which I will be posting soon.
Thanks Val, Cath, Dennis, Sharon!

I spend time finishing this painting yesterday.  First day free in what feels like forever.

I started the class in January before the pandemic hit Canada. It had been collecting dust since.

Anyway, here is my painting.  The funny dark horizontal strips in the dark area are an optic illusion, not seen on the painting.

Thank you Nolan for another fun class  :thankyou:

 
Cheers, Annie
