Making something old new again

Abstract painting by Vicky Christensen, mixed media on 18 X 24 inch canvas 
This painting used to be an uninspiring seascape, one of the first acrylic paintings I painted a couple years ago. I decided to give it a new life as an abstract. I started with Inktense blocks that I used to draw some lines, first along the waves of the original painting and then added more lines and shapes. I used acrylic glazing liquid to wet the dry Inktense lines then began to randomly apply paint with a palette knife. I developed the painting further with brushed layers of color.
