# 45 Kristin, Loons and the aurora

This was a hard subject to figure out how to capture, but another good lesson in painting from memory. The last night in the Brooks range we camped on the shores of Matcharak Lake and woke up to the aurora borealis. You couldn't see them, but you could hear loons calling to the lights. It was a pretty cool moment, so I decided I wanted to try to paint it. I used my sketch my #34 to work from.
8 x 10", acrylic

Wouldn't this be a great cover for a childrens book- certainly gets my attention. Love the pose of the loon in the foreground, the composition keeps my attention. You captured the sherbert-in-the sky look of the northern lights.I like the way you used your sketch. Is it a watercolor?
