Hawaii 2010Aloha

Gabor has returned from his ultimate Water Garden, Hawaii.

He has spent a couple of weeks doing more research and investigations into the magic of the tropical waters. He has enriched his vocabulary in the realm of Koi, Water Lilies and abstract configurations of the water surfaces. He has done numerous pencil sketches, photographs and even small painting sketches noting and experimenting with new ideas that he will develop in his studio into spectacular finished paintings in the months following.

View From My Outdoor Studio

Outside Studio View

View from my outdoor studio. Just raising your head a few inches and you could see whales having a good time.

Crashing Waves

Crashing Waves

Just a few steps from the studio, this is what you are faced with. These waves are not dangerous.
They are actually refreshing, with an abundance of sea life below the surface.

A Favourite Pond

A Favourite Pond

One of my all time favorite water gardens for sketching and photographing.
In the last seven years I have spent many, many hours working around this pond.
You can not see the Koi, but they are there. They are resting in the shady part of the pond.

A Wonderful Water Garden

A Wonderful Water Garden

This is another wonderful water garden, with a long and winding layout.
All these little peaceful, and quiet nooks gives me different combinations for wonderful compositions.
When you see a Koi painting or an impressions in water painting (abstract shimmering water image)
you will not recognize the water garden but trust me different locations
give me almost infinite combinations for creativity.


Koi Waterfall

Koi Waterfall

Under the water falls is the favorite place for the Koi to get high on Oxygen.
They love it. It takes quite an effort to entice them with tasty bits to make them swim where you want them to be.

A Bit About Koi

A Bit About Koi

A little introduction or refresher course on the Koi.

Guardian of the Pond

Guardian of the Pond

This guy I call the guardian of the pond. But he loves fish (to eat).
This is like you entrusting a wolf to tend to your flock of sheep.

At Work

At Work

Here is yours truly at work.

Koi Still Portrait

Koi Still Portrait

It is very difficult to convince the Koi to sit still for their portrait.
Often you have to use your imagination to fill in the blanks.
