Thrift Store Art Improvements

If you've paid any attention to some of the art memes going around the internet, you may have come across the exercise of buying "ugly" thrift-store art and "improving" it with the addition of monsters. This is usually done with Bob Ross-esque hack paintings. The paintings can be bought for fairly cheap and it's fun practice for mixing colors to match and to let yourself paint something free-form. Last month, my best friend and I decided to give it a try. We bought 3 art pieces and added monsters to them, free-style, without drawing them first. Here they are:

1) Original art by "Carter",
monster by Kara Stenberg.

2) Original art by "AY",
monster by Rachel Richards.

3) Original art by Lucy B. Roberts, 1986.
Monster by Kara Stenberg.
