Go Yellow Go!
There's something to a bunch of helium-filled balloons making a break for it that compelled me to paint this ACEO original acrylic painting scene. Note the yellow balloon making its own vie for independence. I designed this composition with several things going on (great vs. little, composition of thirds, triadic color compostion, etc.) but I just loved the juxtaposition of the small yellow balloon high-tailing it from the larger group of balloons. Hence the title "Cast Away". Go little yellow balloon go!
