Fish Demo from Old Dog Painting
This is the awful old dog of an acrylic abstract that has no rhyme nor reason to it. There are birds, frogs, a man's hand, a padlock, frog feet, and more jumbled lines and color that made no sense. I have hated it since it was painted in one of Doug Walton's classes here in Big Spring a few years ago. At the bottom of the pile where no one could see it is where it was. I decided to do something with this mess by choosing it for a workshop demo on how to rework a bad painting, morph it into a new more attractive work of art. After all, you have nothing to lose. It is 22x30 on Winsor Newton 140 lb watercolor paper, cold press. It was begun yesterday at the Palette Club class in Midland, TX.
