"Rising Behind" is a wall art print done using a fauvism oil technique of a hot air balloon rising into the sky from behind another one. The technique focuses on the bright colors of hot air balloons and uses abstract shapes with bold brush strokes for emphasis. Hot air balloons stand out prominent with their colors against the sky. The bold reds, blues, oranges, greens and yellows take center stage. (Click

The setting is a group of hot air balloons getting ready for their sunset ascent. The location is in San Diego County near the coast of the Pacific Ocean. San Diego is famous for its sunset rides. As the sun sets over the Pacific Ocean, the onshore flow of winds decrease allowing the balloons to drift inland and descend for a landing before it gets dark. The trip starts close to the coast and takes you inland about 15 miles. The view is incredible as you ascend over Rancho Santa Fe and quietly drift eastward. For those of us that have lived in that area for years, we are use to seeing up to 15 balloons dot the sky just before sunset.
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 contemporary or modern interior design. The abstract shapes and bright colors become a simple, but bright focal point for any wall.
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.
