I don't know how old this little cart is, or where it was made, but it's full of rustic charm and very fragile.

Also here is a recent watercolor and gouache sketch of a koi, using Daniel Smith's Cascade Green and Undersea Green in the background. I really loved using these colors and the beautiful effects they produce. I also used some  Perylene Green for the very darkest green close to the body at the bottom of the koi. The koi is painted with gouache.

Here are some in-progress photos:
