In this weeks blog I’m featuring two Hot Air Balloon art prints that I haven’t shared before. I have shared a number of my prints in prior blogs and they all go back to two locations: Coastal San Diego or Avondale, Arizona (Phoenix metropolitan area). I go back to the photo shoots from both areas and always think of different techniques I could try for creating new art. The one consistency between both is that I typically capture hot air balloons in the many stages of inflation as it creates unique art pieces. That’s not to say I haven’t also captured your typical “sailing in the air” moments. Today I’m sharing two pieces that show both inflated ready to fly and half inflated balloons being prepped for flight. I created both using an abstract drawing and watercolor technique that creates the general forms and look, without the specific detail. The colors and patterns on the balloons speak for themselves making each one a unique art piece.
The first one is “Ready For Boarding” which focuses on an inflated balloon ready to be boarded for flight. The perspective is a close cropped aspect of the gondola tied into the balloon that is “Ready for Boarding”.
The next print is another balloon ready for flight, but in this perspective I depicted the entire balloon with a back ground of other balloons being inflated.
Thoughts? As I have said before, everyone reacts to visual art techniques and looks differently, so I am not in the least offended by opinions.
