Portrait oma & opa

In November my grandma and grandpa will be married for 55 years. They where very clear on having no gifts but they didn't say anything about self made gifts. So I took the opportunity try out the new watercolours my grandma gave me and made a portrait.

Starting of with a sketch. Scanned it. Enlarged in in PSD. Printed it out.

Traced the back of the printed sketch with a smudgy pencil.

Drew over the sketch with the traced side on the paper.

If you look closely you can see that the traced lines left a mark on the paper. I didn't want to sketch directly on the paper because I didn't want the sketch to come three the paint.

The end result
