Northern Lights - A Work in Progress

Today is going to be another hot 85F (29.4C) and humid 91F (32.8C) day, making it a good day to stay inside with the air conditioner on keeping things livable and getting work done on a painting.

I decided to do a little more work on this painting that I had started many years ago (see posts on 09 December 2010, 21 February, 29 May, 10 July and 29 August 2012) and recently found.

I started on the right hand side of the painting beginning with the trunk of the tall pine tree in the foreground.

Next starting at the top of the tree I added branches and needles, gradually working my way down the tree trunk.

I added the background trees in behind the rocks at the edge of the lake.

I will post this painting at a later date once I have completed the trees on the right side and drawn in the trees on the left side of the painting.
