Southern Belle White Koi Painting by Nancy Medina

Southern Belle White Koi
by Nancy Medina
Oil on Archival Panel

Southern Belle White Koi is a small study painted from my Dallas Arboretum koi photo collection. Work on an 18X24 commission is progressing, and I wanted to play with the green leaves a bit to find the temperatures that would work well on my larger painting. I love combining cool and warm greens to create depth, and a koi pond gives you lots of opportunities to introduce fun colors. These little fish are so fun to paint!
