Red Path on reclaimed Uart paper

Painted this tonight after work. I washed off an old painting and used cans of water base spray paint as underpainting. Using only warm colors, i added some sprinkles of water and allowed the underpainting to mix leaving some nice abstract shape to play with. 24x30 inches
