Icelandic Aurora (Northern Lights) Abstract Paintings


It's been a while since I picked up a paintbrush and really gave myself the time to paint anything but the beautiful skies and landscape here in Iceland are so captivating that you can't help but be inspired. We live in an apartment block which faced west and are a few floors up so we can see the beautiful sun setting each evening. It fills the sky with a ray of colours illuminating the winters snow-filled clouds before it sets for the night. 

I've started a range of Iceland inspired paintings in acrylic paint on canvas. The paint I use is similar to this and brushes are these, I stock up on canvas like this.
