Noctilucent Clouds

This sky painting is based on pictures I saw on the National Geographic twitter feed, talking about noctilucent clouds, which aren’t visible this far south in Florida, but which I hope to see once I move back north to Michigan. I didn’t copy the pictures for this painting, but instead I tried to remember what the clouds looked like and devised a landscape from my head to match.
