RE: [teacherartexchange] New Balloon Painting

I think what I notice is that reflected light from a flame would be more
warm, the colors inside the balloon seem just the same as those outside,
only lighter due to the reflection. Add more yellow/orange tones to
where the flame light is reflected, rather then just lighter.

Your paintings are amazing, I had to look at all of them after seeing
this one! I am partial to your paintings of the kids, WOW!

I did this painting over. It's better the second time. I'd really like a
critique if anyone has an opinion and the time. I'm happy with the
composition but feel it's too busy. Of course the background on my web
page doesn't help calm it down. My wife isn't happy with the flame -
but, that's the whole reason for the painting. Let me know.
