diy for the home: geometric re-painting

I had an old painting that I was not a fan of and my original plan was to paint over it completely.  Upon further consideration I decided to try a few other things first- sort of giving this thing its last chance...
1. The painting I started with
2. I taped off some geometric shapes with painters tape.
3. I covered it completely in dark blue paint and removed the tape!   
Don't have an old painting you are ready to part with? Create your own painting underneath with the intention of painting over it.  I'm liking the result for now, so it might stick around a little longer...
