The other day I decided to create a heart tree card for Valentine’s Day.
On the handmade card I drew a heart tree with Mount Baldy as the background.
The sky was colored in with a lavendar colored pencil.
In this phase of the drawing I colored in Mount Baldy with a violet-blue colored pencil.
During this phase of the sketch I colored in the valley below Mount Baldy, and the area surrounding the heart tree.
Here I have almost finished coloring in the foreground surrounding the heart tree, which is an abstract version of the palm trees that I see everyday.
The heart tree card is now complete. It was a fun Valentine’s Day card illustration, and I hope this posts inspires you to create something that you find meaningful. One of my favorite parts of this illustration is how I created white heart clouds in the sky, giving this card a whimiscal effect. I hope you have a Happy Valentine’s Day!
