Paint Party Friday... Koi Carp

I've had a play and experimented a little during the week, and finally this is where I've ended up with the Koi Carp watercolour painting. 
I think I'm finished on this one and I'll finally call it a day.
It's been good to nip in and out having a dabble here and there, but I think it's time to move on.
I'm pleased with certain aspects, but regret others... but that's what it's like when you're learning isn't it?
Like many of you I'm having a hard time fitting in all that I'd like to at the moment. 
It's that time of year when expectations can completely outweigh reality.
I am going to take stock of what I do and how I allocate my time for this coming new year.
I think it will be a major time for change (hopefully for the good).

I will try to visit as many PPF's blogs as I can because it's amazing how brilliant, inspiring and uplifting it is to see so many artists work. 
They are a great bunch, so click here if you'd like to join in too.
Paint Party Friday
Thanks Eva and Kristin for hosting once again.
I'm also linking to Sunday Sketches

Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
Have fun and enjoy


  1. Its beautiful! I really like what you said about our use of time at the holiday season, well put, we do try to do too much,, we should all take some time to evaluate whats important, really important, have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks Laurie, it was just a whim.
      We'll be spending time with both sides of the family over the Christmas period, which is far easier now that we're back in the UK.
      I hope you have a wonderful weekend too. (No snow here... yet!)

  2. Your painting looks great, Neesi.
    Wish you peaceful holiday time ♥

    1. Thank you Sirkkis,
      I'm not sure about it but then that's normal for me.
      I also wish you a wonderful time over the festive period too.

  3. Wow, this is beautiful. Very calming to look at!

    1. Thanks Lynn,
      I wasn't really sure about the painting right from the beginning, but I've carried on with it to use it as a learning piece.
