The Northern Lights

We have recently returned from a short break in Iceland where we were lucky enough to experience the Northern Lights. I have created my first pastel interpretation of them on black card and really enjoyed the ephemeral nature of the subject. Most of the pastel was applied to my fingers first and then to the surface which was a very subtle technique - echoing the way that the lights gradually emerged from a hint through to a dancing, intense display.
