Aurora Borealis Painting Phase 11


Now I’m beginning to get some depth in the Northern Lights, the top band is definitely closest and the red glow is in the background.  Darkening the sky behind the trees emphasizes the need to make the trees into silhouette forms, so I will work on the trees next and create some forms in the red aurora.  Can you imagine how many dots are on the surface of this canvas at this point??  And, more to come.  In person up-close the paint on this work is gorgeous, the photo doesn’t do it justice.  So, next I darken the trees.

More tomorrow,
