Simple Watercolor Hearts for Valentine’s Day

Paint some hearts with me to celebrate the day of love!

In this video, I use the following list of tools. You can use all of these or just a single palette. I encourage you to experiment with different colors. Don’t worry so much about the exact palette, but rather challenge yourself to try new tools! For example, I use Inktense Pencils (shared below) to define my edges. You can also use any watercolor materials available to you at home. Just have fun!
