Water Lily Koi pond sketch

Coloured added to my water lily koi pond sketch. I did my flowers in all white (what I have decided) and then in photoshop I added pink fill in colour to just have a comparison and satisfy me, as this is another idea I had thought about. Thought I would show you both. My thoughts: White flowers more subdued not the first thing you notice. Pink flowers looks very nice also but the first thing you notice. If you like, let me know what you like best? As for a combo of both, I did not like this idea for the amount of flowers in the composition was looking too busy for the amount. Wishing you a great evening!

New painting sketch idea water lily koi pond

In South Africa, we had a fountain pond with some koi which Andreas bought and loved and they did well and even bred. So this gave me some ideas....Did some sketching this afternoon; Water lily pond with Koi. Thinking of the colours now? white lilies, pink lilies or mixture of both?
