This painting has a history - it was another painting altogether that lacked excitement and everything else a good painting should have. It started as a demo (but finished at home) at the abstract class I teach at the York Art Association. I wanted to show everyone how you can make a failed painting into something much more exciting. The colors from the previous painting are showing through, which gives the piece so much history. It's on a full size sheet of watercolor paper (32 x 28), and I used acrylic, graphite, charcoal and watercolor crayons.
