I stole this idea from a seductive little pop song I heard last summer. One recent Saturday night, I finally committed to crafting a painting out of this crazy song- the sheer farce of it deserved a certain whimsy of style, and I drew directly onto the watercolor paper with the brightest oil pastels in my box without a single line of preparatory sketch, finishing up early the next morning with acrylic paint. Working in such a slipshod fashion, my hopes were that the comical absurdity of it all would be captured in the immediacy of my approach, garish choice of color, and ridiculous characters. It certainly drew some chuckles from the inside circle, so I hope it tickles you, too- I had a good time with it. Sex and danger with a dash of comedy!
