Northern Lights, watercolor on Arches cp, 40 x 30 cm
This scene may be a little exaggerated, but isn't that the whole point of art...

Blaga said...

Grazie, Elvi! Credo che questo è un soggetto perfetto per un wet-in-wet acquerello

Thank you, Rita! I had lots of fun painting it.

Polly, I have to admit that I haven't seen the Aurora Borealis yet. I've always thought that one has to go way up to the north to see it. But recently a friend told me, that sometimes one can see it just here, outside Toronto. So, I am going to do some research and find a way to see this elusive magic!

Thank you, Maria, I'm very glad that you like it!

Grazie, Bianca! La mia descrizione è un po 'esagerato, ma sono anche affascinato da questo fenomeno naturale

Blaga said...

Gracias, Mercedes! Fue divertido pintar estos colores húmedo sobre húmedo

The nice thing about art is that one can interpret scenes in many different ways. There is no right way. Nice watercolor.

This is fantastic Blaga, and I don't think it is exaggerated at all, the Aurora Borealis IS like this and you rendered it wonderfully, the fusion of the colors is perfect ! Totally magical ! xx

Dear Blaga:) That's exact the beauty of art! You did an amazing job on this one. Beautiful contrast with the white snow. I love it!!!

Die Nordlichter hast Du genial gemalt. So zart lassen sie die kalte Luft erzittern.
Grüsse Dich herzlich;-)

This is a great painting ! There's
no weak point in it. Not only the
great effect of the Nothern Lights,
but a wonderful composition formed
by the sky, stars, snow and trees.
I've must have come back and looked
at it a dozen times by now.
A++ !
