Northern Lights

It is a miserable day with the temperature hovering around 41F (5C) and we have mixed precipitation falling to put the icing on the cake.

I decided I would get this painting finished today as I have been working on it for a long time (see posts on 09 December 2010, 21 February, 29 May, 10 July and 29 August 2012, 25 May and 25 July 2016 and 09 July 2018).

Using mixtures of French ultramarine blue, burnt sienna and alizarin crimson, I finished the trunk and broken branches on the dead tree on the left side first.

From there I completed the pine tree on the far left side before working on the smaller trees on the far side of the lake.

This original 7" x 11-1/4” watercolour painting when framed will be available for $245.00.
