Silence of The North

Trying to capture the aurora digitally can be quite tricky! Do you go for hyper-realism or concentrate on the colours in a more abstract way?

After a slew of WIP's I decided to go for the colour as that was what remains most vivid in my mind from my years in the North.

'Silence of the North' is a bit of a misnomer; there is definitely an unique silence at night, especially away from town, but if you listen closely you can actually hear the crackling of the aurora as it dips and soars overhead.
