Amazing! Bellissimo... I'm rather envious of you. Please tell me.. how did you do the northern lights? I am still horribly new to oils and I want to include them in a new painting. Would i have to paint them over the dried background and pull them out while still wwet or how would this be accomplished?

Thank you very much!

I painted the northern lights on a wet background to try and create a very translucent look. I thinned the paint a little bit, drew the lines, then very gently pulled them up while still wet.

Have fun! I'd love to see your painting when it's finished.
