This is a very simple demonstration ( in five parts) of how to paint the Northern Lights.
We've seen them a lot lately in our night skies because when it gets very cold outside the skies get very clear and you can see the stars and the lights too! I told you in the video it was -34 this morning. I cannot walk Chevy for very long when it is this cold because her little feet get very cold!
You will notice that I have not put too many details in the painting ..... You can use your imagination to decide what you put under your sky! In Part 4: I show you that I put in a horizon line and some water and a row of trees with their reflection. You may choose to put a row of big spruce trees or some mountains. That is the BEAUTY of painting.... you get to decide!
Wishing you the very best with yours :)
In the next post you will see the finished painting.
