Didn't really know a ton about the Northern Lights, but a friend asked me to paint them. So I looked up videos and am in awe! Was excited to find the Northern Lights Bob Ross episode and give it a try. I didn't follow him much past the trees since the main thing I wanted to try was the lights for a future original painting. This was so fun. As I'm sure most people feel, this "glows" more in person than it photographs. Really fun, I highly suggest you try it if you haven't!!
