Pointillism Detail Aurora Borealis Painting

Aurora13.jpg

A close-up section of the many layers of dots and colors in the Northern Lights painting. To make the yellow lights look softer and more transparent I’ve started adding another layer of dark dots on top of the light ones.  This procedure softens the edges and gives the illusion of a thin veil, or a see-through layer.   More dots to come, yet.  I can work on refining this piece for many days.  It might begin to look finished, but I’ll let it rest for a few days and work on it again.

More tomorrow,

Gail Niebrugge, Artist of Alaska
