variations on a theme

 

For a long time, I have wanted to do a painting of hot air balloons. So, when I had the chance to do this commission piece, I jumped on it.

The subject is a challenging one, with so many rounded objects with unusual patterns. And, I had to add another challenge... that of a long graduated background. It was lots of fun, and I may do more balloons soon!
