The Lone Balloon of Autumn
The original photograph was taken in the Bosque in Corrales, with the Rio Grande to our right. The leaves were made to look more orange in order to simulate Autumn, and the original balloon in the photo was changed out for one of my favorites. The original sky was clear, and there weren't so many balloons in the far distance.To make a long story short, this photo has had a lot of alteration in order to fit my vision of a Lone Balloon in Autumn. It looks best on canvas due to its painterly appearance, but many prefer it on aluminum.
