Trying out the techniques. I wanted to see how metallic watercolor would do with this exercise. Lesson: it doesn't really spread and blend, but it has a lovely shine and effect that complements the aurora look.

This is my fave northern light technique. Perhaps coz I think it is the best blend I made out of all 4.

Took the city skyline that Zaneena suggested in the next project and used it here. First time making that skyline, and I think it is cute!

My least fave of all four techniques. Perhaps I am not just understanding what this should look like.

Tried the metallic paint here as well. I like the effect! Also decided to try making a windmill silhoutte since I was in a detail mood.
