First Up is an art print I created using an abstract watercolor technique. The technique focuses on the bright colors of the hot air balloons and less on the details of the subject. The balloons stand out prominent with their striped colors. The bold reds, blues, oranges, greens and yellows take center stage. The shapes are soft and whimsical setting the visual for a hot air balloon experience. The setting is a group of hot air balloons getting ready for their sunset ascent. The location is in San Diego County near the coast of the Pacific Ocean.
