Night Hot Air Balloon Festival In Gothic - is a wall art print done using a gothic oil technique of five hot air balloons glowing at night. The technique focuses on the colors of hot air balloons and uses earthen tones and strong brush strokes to create an old world feel. Hot air balloons stand out prominent with their colors against the night sky. (Click on the picture for a larger image)
The event is the annual Hot Air Balloon Festival in Avondale, Arizona (Phoenix metropolitan area). The balloon envelopes are inflated in the early morning hours for flights and races. After that series of events, the balloons are deflated until the evening hours when the envelopes are again inflated, but this time they stay on the ground. As evening turns into night with the darkening sky, the balloon operators shoot large flames up into the envelope of the balloon illuminating the brightly colored balloons. At this event the operators were synchronized to music, making the series of balloons rotate the glow to the beat of the tunes. This nighttime spectacular is referred to as The Desert Glow. It is a stunning scene to behold with the contrast of light and dark and the bright vivid colors of the balloon envelopes.
When considering an art print, the interior design of the room comes into play and the look you are going for with any given print comes into the decision process. This particular style of art print works best in a traditional interior design. The earthen tones and strong brush strokes create that old world feel.
I would also like to point out that on the printed version of this art print, "©Kirt Tisdale/TheWallGallery" watermark will not appear. The print is done individually using a giclee technique (Giclee: a technology for fine art or photograph reproduction using a high-quality inkjet printer to make individual copies). The printer is an Epson Stylus wide-format with Epson UltraChrome K3 Ink. This hot air balloon wall art will be printed on Epson Premium Semi-matte Photo Paper. The paper is 10 ml in thickness, with 96% opacity and a 94 ISO brightness rating. The print is then hand cut and depending on size packaged in either a firm oversized mailing envelope or a mailing tube for protection.
