Northern Lights - A Work in Progress

I was shown another way of doing Northern Lights and thought I would like to try it.

The colour is painted into the background for the Northern Lights and allowed to dry. For this I used new gamboge, alizarin crimson, Antwerp blue and French ultramarine blue.

Once the paint is dry then the trees and background are drawn into it. This is so you know where you want the darks to be left and where you want to lift out the lights.

I will do the next step at a later date and post the results.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and enjoy the artwork.
