Painting: Weather balloon

I finished this painting a while back, but didn’t put it up yet. Forgot to sign it too.. Oh well.. I’m pretty pleased with the end result anyway 🙂

Again, it’s based off real live material. (A screenshot of a documentary. I wonder who recognizes it … 🙂 )

Photo on our balcony

On the photograph, the varnish looks rather blotchy. The colours are not as vibrant as I’d have liked, but this is the first painting I did where I didn’t plan the whole thing from the start. The lighting also doesn’t do it justice, because the weather balloon isn’t as bright in the painting as it looks here. So, despite the colors being a bit off in both the painting and photos of the painting, I’m very happy with the end result and the lessons learned 🙂
