Aurora Borealis Painting Stage 2


I’ve started by placing dots, tightly jammed together, using my darkest darks, multiple colors of dark blues, browns, greens and reds to establish a pattern on the canvas.  At this point the white space is leading the eye off the top right of the picture plane, I’m sure that will change as I add other values and begin to shape the Northern Lights.

More tomorrow,

  1. Hi Gail. Have these last 2 (Phase 3 and Phase 2) accidentally been posted out of sequence?

    Kind regards,

  2. Noella,

    Yes, I was surprised this morning to find phase 2 posted after phase 3. No, I really didn’t paint out everything with white :). I posted these during the conference and you can see that I was a bit distracted. Thanks for setting me straight, and I corrected the mistake.
