Hot Air Balloon by Ekta Shah

Drawing a hot air balloon is a good way to practice the skill of value.  Value is what you create when you use a colored pencil from its very lightest shade to the darkest it can produce.  I also introduce the use of clouds in the sky and creating a weave pattern in the basket.  Students are allowed to select their color scheme as well as the shape of their balloon.  Well done..
