Hot Air Balloons – Old World Charm

I have featured Hot Air Balloons a few times on this blog. I find them fascinating and have presented them in a variety of fashions from colorful abstracts to actual photography. Today I am featuring four art prints where I used a “gothic” technique that replicates an oil painting style of that same name. For us today in paintings, the style generally creates an old world look with rich and warm earth-tone colors that we generally associate with medieval Europe into the  renaissance period.

I did this series for a client a number of years ago and featured one of the prints (not one I am posting today) back in 2014. I liked the series so much I ended up using it in one of our guest rooms.

Colorful Sky with the Space Needle – Featured Art Prints

As a departure from last weeks black and white photography, this week I want to look at a very colorful sky I created as a backdrop to the Seattle skyline. Using a fauvism technique to create the bright colored sky and abstract look, I have attached two art prints that are just slightly different.

In the first print “Space Needle Colorful Sky”, I centered the Space Needle as a focal point with the buildings of downtown part of the background.

 

In the second print “Space Needle Fauvism Style”, I put the Space Needle off-center to the right to allow the downtown buildings to become more prominent in the overall look. 

My initial reaction between the two was the Space Needle centered, but then I was pulled to the Space Needle on the right side for the reasons I stated…..Thoughts?
