6″ by 9″ 50.00 US dollars plus 5.50 s&h Today’s koi is on Illustration board and is painted on gesso. This allows the white of the paper to shine thru. I love working with gesso because you can achieve so much texture. This painting can look like an oil painting if you spray it with gloss fixative or it will look pretty much like it does here if sprayed with a mat fixative. Either way, the piece can be framed under glass or without glass. The koi with the red spot on his head is a favorite type of Koi for many folks from Japan because it resembles their home flag.
