Has anyone here ever done a landscape that included a rainbow? I was thinking of attempting one later on since my mom loves rainbows... but I keep having images of my head of it turning out looking like a childs crayon drawing of a rainbow... I'm just not sure how I'd go about getting the light airy feel of the rainbow and prevent it from looking like a solid form....

Any help or suggestions? I'd also love to see any work that anyone else has done.

here is a suggestion make your painting when you feel you have it the way you want it, then fix it 1 or 2 time lightly let it dry and then very lightly/softly make you marks for the rainbow, then very softly blend it ( with a hair and some air) this is not litteral, it is just a example of how softly to do it.
