Aurora Borealis Painting Phase 8


Somehow the light show is growing linear, I’m not sure if I like it yet.   I’m going back into the lighter values and applying dots of blues and greens mixed with the powerful Phthalocyanine Blue.   A little bit goes a long way.   Once I begin using this blue, everything it touches is stained.   All my brushes are blue, under my fingernails are blue, my easel is dripped in blue, it is everywhere.   I love that blue, it is intense and invasive and if you are not careful it will contaminate every color on the palette.  Use Phthalocyanine cautiously or it will eat up your white paint like a drunk at an open bar!

More tomorrow,

Gail Niebrugge, Alaska landscape artist
