Tints & washes blend together creating new beautiful colours where they meet. Rich Blue hues blend beautifully with fresh shades of green. Luminous pastels merge and melt from purple blues to pink hues to orange tints.
Interesting fact: Auroras display dynamic patterns of brilliant lights that appear as curtains, rays, spirals, or dynamic flickers covering the entire sky. Which is super inspirational when it comes to creating new designs!
‘The aurora can be seen near the poles of both the northern and southern hemisphere. In the north the display is known as the aurora borealis; in the south it is called the aurora australis.’
The green we see in the aurora is characteristic of oxygen, while hints of purple, blue or pink are caused by nitrogen.
“We sometimes see a wonderful scarlet red colour, and this is caused by very high altitude oxygen interacting with solar particles,” adds astronomer Tom. “This only occurs when the aurora is particularly energetic.”’
