We began by tracing a hot air balloon shape and fill in with a variety of different types of lines. Tempera paint was used to fill in between each line. Black permanent marker was used to outline the hot air balloon.
We used liquid watercolor to paint the background paper in warm or cool colors. The balloon was cut out glued onto the background paper. Brown paper and oil pastel were used to create the basket under the balloon.
