Fantasy Garden

Painting by Vicky Christensen, acrylic on 12 x 16 inch canvas 
 I started this painting by dropping different hues of fluid acrylics on a canvas, then brushed to blend loosely. I followed up by spraying the canvas with water and adding more drops of paint, and tipped the canvas to let the colors run. Then I stenciled a few patterns. Here is the resulting underpainting:

I had no idea what this painting would become until I started picking out shapes to surround with the lighter glaze.
