Koi Miniatures #1

with 6 comments

Here are couple of koi miniatures I finished a while ago. When I started sketching the kois, I had no idea how I could paint the water. I just hoped that I would take it as I tackled with it. The ripples were achieved by scrubbing. Since I don’t use masking fluid, I had to do quite a lot of scrubbing.

I just finished my second set of koi miniatures which I will post soon. Please do watch this space…
