At the very base of this piece is a yellow paint marker which I used to make a cross hatch design. That, of course, has been fully obscured. I took red watercolor and thickly laid it over the surface leaving a gap just off of center. I put some thick gesso down the gap and dabbed over the remainder of the card. I pressed wax paper on the gesso and then swirled all the paints with my palette knife. Then I continued to dab the gesso over the entire surface blending the red and the gesso. I finally finished it by painting some red ribbons along the right edge. A nice bright start to the day.
