Fig Newtons and Grapes

12x9 mixed media on paper done today as part of a 2 hour timed event on WetCanvas.  I used an old abstract as the basis, drawing with Micron 03 pen outlines of white coffee cup and saucer, grapes, and fig Newtons.  Watercolor used first and was not strong enough, so I used gouache, then acrylics for more bold color.  Patterns were created within the abstraction and cool colors of blue and turquoise added to offset the hot colors.
