Due to the COVID-19 closures my production partner has closed with the government enforced shutdown. Any product in my shop that is not an original painting will be on production delays. Orders placed during the shutdown will be processed in the order of receipt.
*All my original paintings are available for purchase and are sent directly from my private art studio. I'm healthy and have been isolating (happily painting in my studio) since the beginning of March.
ART TITLE: "Coy Koi" ARTIST: Christie Marie Elder-Russell
MEDIUM: Archival Fine Art Print / Digital 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.
