ART TITLE: "Coy Koi" ARTIST: Christie Marie Elder-Russell
MEDIUM: Fine Art Poster Print
ART STORY: In this Koi painting Christie was playing with the "laws" of watercolor paints. In theory an artist painting with watercolors could not add highlights to a stained dark surface or add a color opposite on the color wheal on top of another without it changing to a muddy color . Christie used Daniel Smith semi-precious gem stone paint to add the pond's surface water ripple s over the dark pond and a hight light blue ripple over the body of the orange Koi Fish.
* The original piece of art was done by Christie with Daniel Smith watercolor paints on a large Arches watercolor paper. "Coy Koi" original is available for sale in the “Original Art” section of this site.
