About This Class

learn to paint hot air balloons against a beautiful, cloudy sky!


Welcome to my class on painting hot air balloons! In this class you will learn how to use masks to paint a variety of hot air balloons. You will also learn how to make a cloudy sky using three techniques, indirect painting, lifting, and a special technique using a pray bottle.  

Really, hot air balloons are just the example I chose to use. The real lesson lies in the easy masking technique you will learn. Once you learn it you will be able to paint just about any object over a soft background.

You will learn several useful skills that will help your paintings get better and better!
