Hi!
That's really beautiful! The pespective you have chosen to paint is pretty difficult but you managed to render it perfectly! The scene is really touching! Is it your own composition or inspired?

Hello! The composition is my own idea but I used a reference for the pose of the couple (otherwise it would be hard to get it right). Thank you for your lovely comment! :heart:

Hi! Congrats, then! This means you are very creative!
Yes, I agree! Reference photos are useful especially in this case.
You are welcome! That's a great work!!!

Amazing! Watercolor paintings always facinated me (probably because I could never master that tool xD) and your artwork is just a perfect example how awesome that medium is. Great color choice, very clean painted, just awesome.
of course, the overall motive looks great as well. Just awesome work :D

Romantic and full of movement, this painting is a delight to look at. I really like that you chose to use the 'red thread' motif here, it makes the painting very powerful since the red just pops out from the rest and draws the eye to follow its path. I can't help but wonder if there is a story behind this work. :) Also, great choice of name for the piece!

There is actually a story behind it, but it's quite personal. And I like it when people can come up with different interpretations for themselves :). Yes, the name "Koi" was perfect since it means both the fish and "love" in Japanese. Thank you so much for such a lovely and thoughtful comment!

I can imagine that, it's such a powerful work that there just had to be a story to it. Personally, I thought about two people reuniting after a long time apart when I saw it, like lovers who had been separated from each other by some difficulties in life, but still bound to each other by the thread of fate. :heart: You're welcome, such lovely artwork deserves comments!
