In Flight

‘In Flight’ is an oil on canvas painting I started about a week ago. I started out by using a wet-into-wet techniques for the sky byt first brushing linseed oil on the entire area first then wiping the excess with a lint free cloth. This created a slick surface to enable the paint to be brushed and blended easily. 

I kept the detail in the foreground simple on purpose so as not to lead the eye away from the main subject – the balloons.
