Light Winter Nights

When I started watercolour painting in 2019, one of my first paintings was of an Aurora Borealis. Since then I've explored painting many dark winter night, from snow to star filled skies, and from Northern Lights to Milky Ways.

Five years later, and many many brushstrokes and lessons behind me, I am examining what I can accomplish about bringing light into my wintery nights.
