In several places on this painting…the paint is thick and it has a tendency to reflect back to the camera lens. You will see this reflection mostly on the reddish orange fish. In person it does look like this it looks like the thinner paint.
I love painting these Koi just a bit animated or you might say with personality… Koi speak volumes while looking back at me while I peer down at them thru the water. It’s amazing how many actually do look up at me.
