Print out your photo the same size you painting will be (we used 23 x 17)

Step 2

Draw the sketch using soft B pencils.

Make 5-7 shapes. Avoid putting in any details.

Then put in 1-5 tones. 1 = white, 5 = black

Step 3

Choose 3 colours. 1 yellow, 1 red, 1 blue.

From only 3 colours you will be surprised

that you can get a lot of different colours


Step 4

Paint over the edges of the frame. That way you can
crop different parts of the finished painting
