I made this one right after "island paradise" since I had some leftover paint on my palette, particularly the phthalo green and blue. I've also been trying to practice my mountain making so this was a good opportunity to do so. It took me around 15 minutes to make this one, as I went fairly quickly. Overall, storing my tube of titanium white cap side down has resulted in there being less oil right at the top, and a firmer paint on my palette. I also tried a different way of loading the knife and applying paint to the canvas and I think it is helping. I was able to achieve a bit more 'breaking' of the snow with this one. I genuinely really enjoy painting the northern lights on black canvases so I will find any excuse to do so! This was a smaller canvas, maybe 10x14 or something like that? I am not certain.
