Letter forms in painting ....

I didn't like the letter forms in the 'BUDDY' doggie painting so I reworked them.

I obliterated the watercolor with a mix of cobalt and pink and borrowed those colors into the rest of the composition.

Here's a fun fix: you can use a sheet of typewriter correction film to transfer letters or any design onto the dry acrylic. I have big 8.5 X 11 inch sheets from Correcttype that I cut up as needed.

When you transfer the white pigment from the sheet it leaves gaps that give your next transfer a scratchy quality.
