I obviously love painting skies. This one is of the sky over Brentwood Bay on Vancouver Island. It is one that I painted over the summer and delivered to Madrona Gallery last month. I also delivered a couple of my other sky paintings. It was fun to see them all lined up ready to hang.
As many of you know, I have been into the atmospheric lately, especially with the skies. And could I resist painting the Northern Lights? Absolutely not! Watercolor seems the perfect medium to capture the Aurora Borealis. The paint moves similar to how I imagine the lights move and change. I haven't seen the real northern lights (only in photos and videos) but I hope that someday I can make it far enough north to do so. And I hope that it will be summer when I go.
