Painting in California this spring

The idea was to take an old watercolor painting you have done that you do not like, then gesso over it. We used gold-tinted gesso (for the cat painting, I did not use gesso in order to try something new, and because the under-painting was rather light). Next, we used watercolor crayons to sketch shapes. Then, we used acrylics to create new paintings! We used the watercolor crayons once more at the end to emphasize some of the shapes.
