Title is the Japanese term for a orange/red koi and a white koi with random black markings.

This was a wonderful break from school work (who am I kidding I don't work.. ;)) And I thoroughly enjoyed using new techniques. I have several pressings of leaves, some that were laid on the watercolor, some that were painted and pressed with acrylic. I love Koi so much, I plan on having a series that takes up all the wall space in my room! :heart:


Prints can be found here! Check it out!

Ahh I love the leaf pressing idea!! The one in the bottom right, was that laid on, or pressed with acrylic?

Thank you so much! All of the ones that are more pronounced are acrylic, the more subtle pressings are in watercolor (:
