It may just be my bright monitor, but the colors for me a very dull and washed out... which isn't helped by the background. I would of thought the koi would be more vibrant. It also lacks any feel of them actually being underwater and swimming around. They look beached.
However, this is also jawdroppingly detailed with photorealistic accuracy and a professional piece in it's own right.

I'd almost bet this could be done as a photograph. Might need the camera hanging from a crane, a deep polarizer, complete control of the lighting, and the patience of a saint. But I think it could be done.

Faved...

The title and the framing...
the controlled colours...is a giveaway...
this is a Japanese inspired piece of rythmic art...!

My take on suggesting (I like to tease Athena):
"Matters of considerate gravel...amongst Koi"

I can put this...on the wall...
of my Tokonoma...
the reset corner of my room...
where I have a display...
changing with the four seasons...

This painting will represent fall...

The word MA means space between...
the space between spaces...
blanks...?
that describes the spaces...
that is...

we do not have the concept or word...
but we know the feelings...
We can say: "The story is between the lines"...

I enjoy this picture imensly...
Thank you for posting...
and Congrats on the DD...!
Greetings Jakob.
