Air Balloon 3 - Hollow Echo by rontufox Air Balloon 3 - Hollow Echo by rontufox

Interested in buying the original? Note me!

Summer 2010
4x18 Watercolors
6 of 18 from my Balloons, Hot Air Balloons, and Chinese Lanterns series.

Sixth piece of my watercolor series themed balloons, hot air balloons, and Chinese lanterns. I don't know why, but blues are very hard for me to paint with watercolors, and scanners have trouble picking up blue greens =(

I wish there were more artists like you. all I see are a lot of anime artists and people drawing their OCs.

The balloon itself is what makes the piece, for me; there's a fantastic amount of detail in so few brush strokes; and it contrasts well with the (appropriately) sketchy backdrop.

Thank you. I remember this being my favorite balloon to render, so that probably contributes to it :XD: I'm really glad you find the limited brush strokes and sketchyness successful.

I think it shows that it's one you particularly enjoyed working on; it has a vibrancy that sets it apart.

Things I love about this picture: the icy-mountain landscape, the blue colors, and how the balloon sticks out. Amazing!

:thanks: Thank you for your input! I think it would have a much different feel if the balloon were a different color

Aww, how can you be so awesome? :iconiloveyouplz:

Oh, one my daddy told me that the scanner has problems with blue because it's light is blue. :/

I'm awesome? :iconiloveitplz: Well, only with certain things I'm awesome. :XD:

And that makes a lot of sense now... I really hate how blue-greens don't show up, cuz I love those colors =(

Yeah, I love those colors too. :cry:
When I'm gonna use the scanner I put a black paper under the drawings to protect the colors! :dummy:

And yes, you're awesome. Never stop being awesome, please. *-*

Putting black paper does that?? :o

It makes the light a bit weaker, protecting the colors, so they won't change much. o:
