Advent | 1 | Icebreaker

Haven't painted for a while, feeling quite rusty. I was totally "how the heck..." when it came to painting the aurora, but it turned out quite good. The boat, however - which I expected to be easy - proved tedious and tricky.


  1. Did Frozen Planet provide inspiration for this, by any chance?

  2. I've been wanting to vessel in ice for years now - I think it was actually inspired by an X-Files episode originally. Something about the isolation is mysterious and spooky. I did put on the latest Frozen Planet to get me in the mood, and not only was there an ice breaker ship but then time lapse footage of the auroras as I was in the middle of painting my own. It was weeeird!
