New Mexico Hot Air Balloons

New Mexico is the hot air balloon capital of the world. So I picked it for my #Draw50States project. I painted this picture back a year ago (August 2015).

 I wanted to try something with the style of inked lines and watercolor.  I also used pastels in the sky as an experiment. So I guess you could call this a  multimedia piece.  

I really enjoyed working on the balloon.  I drew it using a photo I took the previous winter as a reference.
