Making Holiday scenery with balloon painting
Recently, I finished the watercolor painting, "Christmas scenery" like below.
Above the picture, I painted with balloon, it is called the balloon smashing technique. I would like to share it how to draw with your balloon.
First, I prepared the three colored watercolor paints like the left of the below. Next, I smashed it with balloon until I can find the proper pattern like a pine tree.
And then I painted the background first like left side of the below. After then, I applied the previously prepared the tree patterned color on my balloon.
I created the tree shapes with trials several times until the shape looks like a pine tree like below. In this process, you have to consider the contrast where is the light or dark part for showing your pine tree more 3 dimensional.
And then I sprayed the white ink with splatter's technique by using finger tips. It looks like a snowy night with pine trees.
For last step, I applied the golden glue for making a christmas decoration on the pine trees.
Here is the finished work. Have a happy holiday~~
