"Aurora Borealis" watercolor by Linda Bein at the Bein Gallery

"Aurora Borealis"
arches 140 lb cold press paper
I started this painting with an under-painting on another paper, I laid this on the other wet wash and it lifted/printed an under-painting on this paper. It looked like the northern lights,  Aurora Borealis, to me.  But I wanted to hear the comments and left it on the easel in the studio.  One of my students that has lived in Alaska told me it looked just like the northern lights; and so it was named.
