When I was trying to teach myself how to draw, I bought several drawing books. I didn’t do much with most of them for a long time. Now that I’m taking drawing lessons and have learned a little bit, I’m returning to those books and trying out a few things. I drew these two sketches based on instructions from How to Draw Cool Stuff by Catherine V. Holmes.
I decided to try my watercolor pencils to shade the heart. I don’t really know how to use the watercolor pencils, but I read the instructions and took Nike’s advice: Just Do It. I made the heart into a Valentine’s Day card for hubby.
