I needed to make some smaller artworks for an upcoming show, so this is the first (and probably the largest) of my “minis”. I also wanted to play around with a more subdued color scheme as a change of pace since I have been doing very colorful works lately.
I think this stylized Koi fish has a kind of japanese / celtic / art nouveau / tribal look to it.
