Pastel Painting of Colorful Hot Air Balloons

Hot air balloons are a good choice for complementary colored patterns within the balloons themselves as well as created by their positions.

The colorful balloons are both at one with and set off by the complementary colored pointillism sky, clouds and flowered fields.

The repeats of color, pattern and texture are intended to give order and balance to this composition. Interest and emphasis are created by the combination of realistic modeling and whimsical colored patterns and texture. The emphasized horizon adds important depth.
