Reflections, koi painting by Natasa Vretenar
I am continuing my work on the pond paintings. I love koi ponds with water lilies in bloom. One of my favourite koi ponds is the one in the Albuquerque Botanical Garden in NM. It is a large pond, with beautiful waterfalls and many koi. We spent countless hours by that pond observing the fish and other animals that would come around. The last time we visited - we got lucky and watched a young blue heron stalking and hunting fish in the pond.
I am using a lot of different mediums for this series - gels, coarse medium, flakes etc.
