Got Milk? Recycled Watercolor

17 x 15 dilute latex acrylic over existing watercolor of 3 cats that just did not work! I cropped 5 inches off the top, totally wet it front and back, then very wetly applied Benjamin Moore white latex acrylic with my fingers over the whole image.  When dry I enhanced the areas behind lighter colored cats to push them forward and vice versa for the black kitty.  Wax crayon was used to draw the original line drawing.  I will post the original watercolor for comparison BEFORE and after versions so you can see.  So stay tuned!!!
