Balloon Painting

This painting is already finished, but I wanted to show you  the day by day progress.
A client wanted a simple 8x10" rendition of my poster for the 2012 Balloon Fiesta.
And he wanted it "old school" as in acrylic with lines.
I started off by toning the canvas with my usual burnt sienna and red.
I sketched a lose composition to get the main components in place.
As you can see, my balloons are not really balloon-shaped, at this point.
Well, sort of.
I will post the finished painting tomorrow.
Oh, and I broke in the kitchen on Sunday by making enchiladas for a crowd of about 25.
It was fantastic!

Dee! I love the perspective on this, as if the viewer is above the balloon as well as above the ground. Way to go!
