Raising the Balloon

Well, I'm not sure what the technical term for this would be, I'll have to research before I finish this piece so I'll have a better title. This is from a photo I took several years ago at the Albuquerque Balloon Festival. I actually started it several weeks ago on another color paper, a pale yellow. I soon realized I wasn't going to be happy with the finished result so I put it aside. Yesterday, I finally decided I'd waited long enough and began again on this mid-grey Fabriano Tiziano. The results are much more pleasing and I'm moving right along--at a snail's pace!
