Two koi

March 31st, 2007

Two Koi – 8″ x 8″ watercolor on Stonehenge paper

Two little Descanso koi, looking for some fish chow. Look out for the racoons!
At Mulberry Pond at Descanso Gardens, they have created some ledges and shelves out of rock for the koi to hide under. I heard from one of the volunteers that the racoons will actually wade in the water to fish. But apparently they won’t swim into deep areas. Racoons, herons and egrets are a problem for pond owners who treasure their living jewels. To the predators it’s just an easy meal.

  1. That’s so clever, the way you’ve managed to get them part in and part out of the water. Thanks also for the step by step on your previous post – I always find those useful.

  2. I love that place around the top fish’s head where the light flares just a little! So nicely done! Someone will be lucky to have this!

  3. I’m not a “fish person”, but these are so beautiful, that I had to admire it…I enjoy the light catching on to them where they are out of the water. Your work is always a joy, Karen.
