Bee a Little Punny, Valentine - a valentine tutorial
Gather your watercolor and calligraphy supplies.
Start with watercolor to make a sky. Use a big brush to make wispy strokes. As long as the paint is wet, you can add paint or change the edges.
1
While it dries, think about your beehive. Here are some hive sections to help.
And think up a few bee pun possibilities.
When the watercolor is dry, add a bee pun in calligraphy.
2
Draw a beehive partially overlapping the sky. Using a pencil first might be helpful.
3
Next, draw some heart shaped bees buzzing about the hive. Leave some as outlines and color some in.
4
When the ink is dry, erase any pencil lines. Then fill your brush with light brown or ochre paint and tap it on your finger to make splatter bees.
5
Let it dry again, and you're finished!
Now, you can try another bee pun.
