Stenciled Trees

Painting by Vicky Christensen, acrylic on 16 X 20 inch canvas 
This painting was an experiment. The goal was to use stencils in a dompletely different way. I wanted to do another autumn themed mixed media painting, so I started with some gold, red and green fluid acrylics as a background, then stenciled on many layers of more transparent color. Tonight I finished with tree trunks and branches and some negative painting to define the outline of the tree canopy and fill in the sky. This painting was lots of fun.
