There is a competition of illustrations - miniatures in the Instagram and I decided to participate. The main condition - the size of the picture should not exceed 5 cm. There should be 4 themes for illustrations, one of them is "air".
I decided to draw with alcohol markers, because of the size I had to use only a thin rod. On the first topic I got the following picture.
Firstly I marked the lines of the picture because of the conditions of the contest. I decided to drew my picture into the circle.
Then I drew the contours of the picture with a pencil.
Then I started to paint the sky. I used a blue marker, leaving white places for clouds. The top of the sky was slightly darkened by the same marker.
Then I drew the grass. For light shades used yellow and pink markers, for dark ones - a green marker. Then, in the vegetation, I added a few shadows to the umber.
I painted the central figure of the picture - the girl. I drew with a red marker her dress, specifying the folds with a brownish-pink color. I painted her feet and hands with a pink marker.
Then I started to paint the balloons. I decided to use several colors to convey the girl's rainbow mood. I used red, yellow, green, orange and pink markers.
I added the volume to the clouds, drawing a shadow on them with a dark yellow marker.
At the final stage, I strengthened some detais with gray liner in the drawing, I added with umbra the shadows on the balloons. Drew the lines of the drawing with a black marker. The picture is ready.
To compare the size of the picture, I photographed my picture near the jubilee coin of the USSR.
