a first peek at the Balloon Fiesta Poster

I am almost finished with the poster!
I have finished painting and added the lines. Today I taped off the painting in sections to go over the linework again - to make sure that all lines are connected with no breaks and nothing is out of place. I'd forgotten how tedious this process is!
If you look closely at the linework above, you will notice that some lines aren't completely connected and some are a little wobbly and not clean.
If all goes well, tomorrow I will varnish the painting and then I'm done. 
look for an update tomorrow.


  1. Wow! I can't wait to see the finished painting! I love the colors! Where can I buy one? Love it!

  2. I love the lines. They really make it distinctive! Do you decide before hand where to put them or do them more or less freehand?

  3. Oh my word! favorites from you!!! Love all your work...but LOVE the lineworked ones BEST OF ALL!!!

  4. I will need one of these cups for sure. I can imagine the line work is tedious but I have to admit - I miss it - this painting is fantastic!

  5. you guys are killing me with the lines! Just kidding. I paint the whole painting first, then put in lines, then tape it off section by section to make sure all of the lines are unbroken and connected. Talk about tedious.
