Koi paintings by Natasa Vretenar

Feeding Frenzy 11x14"

" Two rather large koi fish swam about in a pond. The pond shimmered in the sunlight that it was under. Two koi fish swam, looking for food. No food was in sight, none at all. One day, a surprise came for these two critters, as small, fluffy, pieces of something strange floated in the water. "Bread," the koi fish heard the strange beings that called themselves 'hu-mans' say as they threw it into the water. " A.P.

I am working a few koi paintings right now. They are all 11x14" and an adventure in different mediums and textures. I am using golden mediums for fish textures and fluid acrylics for water.

This summer we spent a lot of time by the pond filled with koi - I must have taken thousands of reference photos so there will be a few more paintings of the pond in the future.
