Moovie Stars - Reworked Acrylic/Mixed Media

This is the bad floral from a few years ago ABOVE.


30x22 inches, a pair of Holstein cows, cropped, drawn over existing latex acrylic pink/white floral with black Tombow brush pen. Next I put in black using ink. With Caran D'Ache watersoluble crayons I scribbled blues for the sky and greens for grass under their feet, adding water, letting dry, reapplying crayons. This is at the 2 hour mark. I left the abstract floral stems/leaves in foreground but might have to glaze over them later. I kind of like them as the whole composition is unusual and strange. They are ready for Hollywood!

Kay, this is too funny! And wonderful! What an amazing re-work!

Still can't wrap my mind around the fact that you seem to do this re-working stuff so easily. This is such a happy piece.

Meant to inquire earlier, Kay...did you start the piece in Walton's class with wet in wet technique? Your pinks are so soft and whispy?

Yes, the floral was done in Doug's workshop a few years back.

Thank you very much! Someone on WetCanvas where I also posted it said the title should be "Strawberry Milkshake".
