I started off by painting this painting with spray primer (you could use any primer or no primer, but I primed it because I already had a can of it sitting around...):
thennn, I used a sweet ballerina pink color (If you wanna know the color it's "paris pink" by Martha Stewart...it was sitting around from an old job as well) to cover the canvas entirely. Yes, there are traces of the mountain-scene from the old painting poking up through the pink, but I like it. It gives the solid color a nice texture and reminds me of its roots.
After I let the pink dry, I wanted to add words, but decided I wanted them to be a bit organic and free-flowy, so I used india ink to paint on French words about sleeping (googled it...still not quite sure what it says...I know that's bad...). I love how the words aren't perfect, and that the india ink makes it look watercolor-ey. I added the brackets for flare too, I know they aren't grammatically correct.
