Hot air balloon art.

I managed to keep up my 'art Monday' the past two weeks! I drew and then painted this picture of hot air balloons. Well I guess I coloured it as I used watercolour pencils. They are super fun, you colour the area and then go over it again with a wet paintbrush and voila! Art! The downside is that I find it harder to blend the colours but I think I just need more practice. It is from a picture from when Mom, Amy, and I went for for a sunrise hot air balloon ride in the Cappadocia area of Turkey. This view is from the ground while the sun rose and we were waiting for our balloon to fill. About 75 balloons went up the morning we were there. It was quite the sight.

Balloons! The landscape in that area is amazing.
