Art Project a Day #15

Art Project a Day #15. My daughter, Kelly, and her husband, John, have a Koi pond on their property in Texas. I took several photos when I was there, and this is my first attempt to watercolor one of them. In the original photo, I liked the reflection of the trees in the pond.

This is an 8 x 10 inch watercolor on 140 pound Arches watercolor paper.


  1. Awesome Jayne. I really love this one. You did a great job with the reflections in the water and Koi. The dark really makes everything jump out doesn't it?

    I've been posting your links on my Facebook and on my blog. I really think people are going to enjoy your work.

  2. Marty, I am enjoying the darks, too, and they do seem to make the other colors pop.

    Thank you for all your support and for posting it on your blog, and on FB. I appreciate it.
