As I was setting up this still life I popped one of the balloons! I think my studio can handle it, the water fell mostly on a rug… oh well. I bought some water balloons initially because I was remembering Carol Marine’s water balloon paintings from her blog and wanted to try. Though, I introduced my 2 year old daughter to them this week and I think my hands will permanently smell like balloons. So glad she loves them though.
Anyways, the light pastels of the balloons when they’re full threw me off – but I think I captured what I wanted.
