"Koi Pond II" small watercolor painting by Louisiana artist Linda T Snider Ward
Koi Pond II is a small (5.5" x 7.5") watercolor on Rives BFK paper. This type of paper, a printmaking paper, doesn't allow for a lot of transitions but receives the watercolor as a stain. The image is from several pictures that I took of a friend's koi pond. When the fish hear her voice, they come up to the surface to greet her (hoping for food, of course).
