Lay in for Koi Painting

20x24 o/c lay in for large Koi painting.
I thought it might be fun to share my turpentine technique with you on a lay in. I have made my drawing with a #4 bristle brush and ultra marine blue with turp and then washed in color on lily pond leaves, Koi and water also with turp. Left click on the photo and you will see a close up of the brush strokes and scrub in.
I will add a lily too somewhere just have to pick out a place. I want the painting to be about the Koi but having the color and pond subjects set them off. Anyway, I will go in tomorrow and start shaping it up more. May finish it tomorrow, see how it goes.
I will do a warm up "morning" painting tomorrow too. Not Koi and not pie....something new!!
