Watercolor Painting - Koi Art - Water Ballet - Japanese Carp Art Print
"Water Ballet" is a giclee print reproduction of an original watercolour painting on yupo by professional artist Brazen Edwards, using Epson Ultrachrome professional archival ink printed on Somerset Velvet, which has the look and feel of watercolour paper or can be printed on gallery stretched canvas in a variety of sizes.
Japanese symbolism for the Koi represents perseverance in adversity, strength of purpose, and determination to overcome obstacles, it stands for courage and the ability to attain high goals. The legend is the strongest Koi swim upstream until it reaches the final waterfall, where it vaults into the mists and becomes a water dragon.
This piece is part of my series of zen watercolor paintings, the movement of Koi along the turquoise water brings about a sense of peace and serenity, almost like having your very own Koi garden to watch! They are a social, active fish, rarely keeping still and always swim in groups. They also live a lot longer than most other fish, the oldest Koi lived up to 226 years old! Little wonder that the Koi is a symbol of many good things.
This painting had the honour of being featured in the Janurary issue of Watercolor Artist Magazine!
