how to draw
The basic shapes of your balloon drawing are fairly simple and quite repetitive, but the trick lies in getting the perspectives right.
To begin, let us draw the central balloon. Find the middle of your canvas, and draw a slightly tilted vertical oval.
add the next
Begin by adding a second balloon shape on the left of the first one. You can then add the third balloon overlapping the left of this second.
start the 2nd
Start by drawing a slightly smaller balloon shape on the very right of the first row. This balloon shape should be significantly tilted to the
You can now add two more balloon shapes to the top layer of your easy balloon drawing. Repeat the same process.
create the 3rd
You can now add a third row of two balloons above the previous one. These two balloon shapes should sit in between the three on the second row.
In the tradition of the previous balloon shapes, these two should tilt towards each side more than the middle two.
In the final construction step, you are going to add two more balloon shapes on either side of the middle row.
Let us start with the top line, erasing the bottoms of the top ovals where they overlap with the middle row.
Continue the process of erasing the overlap lines in the middle line. Erase the bottoms of the middle line of balloons in the bottom row.
Finish the final outline of your easy balloon drawing by erasing the overlapping lines of the bottom row.
Begin with the bottom ones, taking a straight line from each of the air holes. You can then add a few more lines that extend from the general angle of each balloon.
draw the knot and strings
The strings that extend down from the balloons are straight and taut, but after the knot, they are a little looser and flowing.
add color to
You can choose the colors that you would like, but we recommend four or five different shades.
Use a small blending brush and a tiny amount of black paint to add some shadows to each balloon.
Use a small blending brush and some white paint to add an area of reflection onto each balloon.
To finish your balloon drawing, you are simply going to erase the outlines of your balloons to create a seamless result.
