This painting was based off a visit to the Blank Park Zoo in Des Moines. They have a ton of koi in a small lake and when you threw in a little fish food this was the result, complete chaos.
Once again it was color and pattern that really attracted me to doing this painting. I also really like the movement running along the diagonal.
Interestingly enough, Blank Park Zoo actually used this image in the sign next to their koi pond, talking about the varieties of fish they have.
