And Balloons In Bristol

13 Aug

Following on from watching pale, wobbly Brits stripping off at the Bristol Balloon Fiesta, we had loads of entertainment watching the incredible hot-air balloons taking off, landing, dancing around the arena and finally, late at night, glowing in sequence to music, like gigantic torches. It was a grand day out.  I did two scribbles with the balloons in the background. It’s good practice for getting a sense of scale, because the human crowd was so tiny in comparison to these behemoths of the sky. [Wow, where did THAT phrase come from?].

I like the skinny chap in the centre with the baseball cap – he’s a good contrast to the big, fat, round balloons. Drawn in Faber Castell Pitt pen size S into my recycled leather-bound A6 sketchbook by Artbox.
