Koi Encaustic Paintings

I finished up a series of 4 12x12" koi encaustic paintings, for a two-month exhibit where all the paintings have to contain an element of water in them. I had never tried to paint fish with hot wax and it was an interesting experience. I can see how the wax media can really lend itself to creating cool water effects. The sketchy look of the fish actually adds to the effect of them being in the water.
