Baaaad Dog!

This week's theme at The Butterfly Effect is "RED". So I thought, easy peasy, I'll just choose page in my Tyvek Journal and...
paint it red :D Looked at for a while, couldn't see anything. Couldn't see Red Riding Hood anywhere....
then I turned the page and...baaad wolf appeared :D
all snarly and foaming with rage...started scrubing on colour with a dry stubby brush...
But it was all a bit cartoony for my taste...
so I got some white acrylic and a sea sponge and obliterated it. Then it looked better, and I added some splatters of red ink...and it looked much better. Even the title began to show itself...
I picked out the word "Dog", which seemed so clear to me and added the word "BAAAD"
Cos this dude really is "seeing red" :D XXX
