Complete Koi...

Finished this yesterday - that was a lot of fun!  It's a bit unpredictable painting on silk but some of the effects you can achieve are wonderful - I discovered that splashing darker pigment on wet fabric makes a lovely splattery pattern, and dropping plain water on still damp pigment creates a watery look when it dries.  White Inktense dries quite pale but in some lights shines like it is reflective - terrific for scales and ripple highlights.  Wish I had time to play some more with silk painting, but that will have to wait a while for now.
