Art for the non-artist.
I have seen it done by many people and it always looks great.
You’ll need: a picture, a sharpie, watercolour paints and watercolour paper
Scan or upload the picture you want to paint onto a computer. Convert the image to black and white, and raise the contrast. If you have photoshop you can use an effect called stamp to isolate the key parts of your picture, making the next step easier. Once you’ve flipped the image like a mirror print it out.
I'm doing a picture of my Grandfather for my Grandma's Christmas present.
