As I was painting this, my idea changed for how I wanted it to look. At first, I used the eye dropper tool to find the exact color for every part, but then as I was looking at it, I noticed that none of the colors were really going well together. To fix this, I started to follow a pattern with the colors so that all of the colors went together.
I have painted in real life in previous art classes and on pottery. I liked virtually painting a lot better than painting with real paint. It was easier to paint virtually, because you can zoom into the picture more than you can in real life. It’s also easier because the paint on the computer isn’t runny and messy. Virtually painting was a little harder in the sense that when you zoom in too far, you cant see the picture well.
My favorite part of this picture would have to be the bottom of the balloon leading down to the basket. This is my favorite part because it looks so realistic and neat.
If I could go back and change anything, I would change the background. I would maybe make the background a little more detailed. I wanted to show a few clouds in the background, but I couldn’t figure out how to make it look as realistic as it did in the original photo.
