Tranquility by katat0nik Tranquility by katat0nik
EDIT: This is available as a small magnet now - it's too small to make into a dA print though. You can buy or add to your wishlist here: [link]

Medium: Oil paint on watercolor paper with pva base
Size: approx. 1 3/4" x 2 3/8"

For :iconsphilr: :hug:
Turn away from the dark corners of the world and get lost in tranquility...

This is another tiny painting, my work will slowly get bigger and bigger over time...lol. The koi is swimming away from Earth to reach a higher plane because it has tranquility on it's mind (literally!) :)

For a minute I thought the flower on the Koi's head was a pair of lips, but then I realized Koi don't have lips like that! :D

Gorgeous work:) The colors are bold and beautiful! I love how the background kinda transitions from dark and light as if the fish is closing in on the surface. Awesome work:)

:glomp: Thank you Jamie!! I miss colored pencils, but then I remember how they used to make my hands cramp after hours of coloring... and I'm happy I can paint now lol.
