This fourth grade artist, Lola, did an impeccable job using the colors to make shadows. I’m in love with that center balloon, which blends fuchsia and red.

There are a lot more fun and easy ones in my new VALENTINE DRAWING ebook. 

It contains 25 tutorials of things to draw as stand alone art, or perhaps very sweet homemade cards.

Each project includes easy to follow step-by-step tutorial, a full size line drawing for reference, and finished color sample. Just click on the title or book to learn more.
