The Only Way Is Up

One of my hot air balloon photos from Colorado Springs annual show...this was early in the morning while the balloons were still filling.

Process: I started by clipping seven brightly colored solid papers to the hot air balloon brush and erasing various sections of each paper to reveal the colors I wanted; merged all the layers; created several copies, applying color burn blending mode to the top layer. I processed my photo with Waterlogue app and with another copy of the photo (same size as the first) I created an outline overlay (Steps 1-5 of Part Photo, Part Sketch Tutorial, https://ozone.oscraps.com/tutorial-part-photo-part-sketch/); merged layers and clipped to WaterColor Fotoblendz mask. Tried different background papers and decided to use Artsy Paper 2 from ArtPlay Palette Meadow, duplicating it and increasing the saturation on the bottom layer for brighter foliage; erased area over trees and ground from top layer to reveal brighter layer below. Added textures and transfers to complete the grassy area. Clipped far right balloon watercolor to Uplift WordART. Finished with MM Balloon.
Great photo! I know firsthand it's not easy to get good hot air balloon photos at the fiestas.
 
How fun to see hot air balloons floating through the sky! A great photo for sure, and I love how the new brushes adds to the scene! Wonderful Marnie!
