This piece is from December 2016. I had no reference picture and I admit, that the whole painting looks a bit abstract. As always – when I wanna have it realistic I can take a picture by photo camera. But this is just my personal opinion. I used watercolor paints by Nevskaya Palitra and the watercolor paper is by VANG. Painting northern lights with watercolors was a challenge. It’s actually easier with oil paints or acrylic paints. That’s why I’m completely satisfied with the result. The following link leads you to the video. Doreen.
