Recycling old art

Painting by Vicky Christensen, mixed media on 16 X 12 inch canvas panel 
This painting started as an experiment with acrylic and alcohol. I have seen examples of using alcohol to create 'blooms' in acrylic paint and wanted to try it. I also wanted to try my new Posca paint markers. But then I was stuck until I remembered an old watercolor painting that I had abandoned. So I used pieces of that old painting as collage elements. Add more paint and marker highlights and you have today's painting.
