Floating leaves

Painting by Vicky Christensen, mixed media on 16 X 12 inch canvas panel 
 This is another experiment with fiber paste and raised stencils. I wanted to see if I could get some watery effects. I didn't get all the effects I wanted, but picked up some ideas for future paintings.

The color in the upper part of the painting was bugging me, so I decided to glaze it with phthalo blue. Here is the updated version:
Same painting after glaze

Here is the painting in earlier stages. When I was at this stage I thought it was too light. Now I wish I would have kept the lighter hue.
